(Newser) – An amazing moment was caught on video in New York City Sunday, when onlookers ran to lift an SUV off of a pedestrian. The woman had apparently been run over, the New York Post reports. Nearly a dozen passers-by tilted the vehicle to the right in order to pull her out. She was transported to a hospital, where her condition was not clear, but the Post notes she was seen on video apparently conscious after being rescued, and according to a rescuer's account cited by the Bowery Boogie, only her ankle was trapped and she was actually able to crawl out from under when the rear passenger wheel was lifted up.
