Police officers and bystanders lifted an overturned car and rescued the 19-year-old driver trapped inside in Lawrenceville, Georgia, on September 13, according to the Lawrenceville Police Department.

Police said Sgt Michael Peterson spotted a speeding motorist and made pursuit; shortly afterwards, he came across an overturned car and realized it was the same vehicle.

Peterson noticed the driver had been “partially ejected through the sunroof with his upper body and head squeezed in between the vehicle and the roadway,” police said.

“He can’t breathe, we’ve got to lift this car up right now,” Peterson is heard saying in the footage.

This footage shows the car being lifted with the help of “several good Samaritans.”
