Scott Mayhew was working on a car inside his Utah garage Monday when it fell off the jack and onto his chest; trapped, he cried for help for an hour and a half to no avail. "He said he remembers he could barely breathe," wife Nicole tells Fox 13. "He didn’t know what was going to happen." What happened was that she came home, found him, called 911, and got a neighbor to help lift the vehicle using the jack. It's the why she came home that's remarkable: She was at work that morning and suddenly had a premonition. "I just said I need to go check on him working on the car, I just believe a spirit told me," she says.

As she got to their Saratoga Springs home and heard her husband calling, she had a vision of what she'd find in the garage: "I thought, 'it’s on him, it'’s got to be on him, the car,' that’s what’s in my head, so I knew immediately," she says. She found the 43-year-old father of five, who says he'd been praying for her to come home, under the Ford Explorer. Paramedics responded, and though responders were concerned about possible internal bleeding, Scott is expected to make a full recovery; he broke six ribs. "I consider him extremely lucky," a paramedic tells ABC News. "He could have lost his life had he been under the car much longer." A crowdfunding campaign aims to raise money for the time he's out of work. (More uplifting news stories.)
