WACO (October 2, 2013)--A man who was changing the rear brakes on his brother’s car ended up pinned beneath the vehicle when a jack collapsed Wednesday afternoon in Waco.

The man, whose name wasn’t immediately released, was taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center.

Information about his injuries wasn’t available Wednesday evening.

A witness said a woman came out of the house after the jack collapsed and tried unsuccessfully to lift the car off of the man.

Then she told a young girl to run to a neighbor’s house to get help.

The first neighbor wasn’t home, but a second one was and he grabbed a jack, with which he was able to raise the car off the man’s chest before first responders arrived, the witness said.
