Lauren Kornacki, 22, is a hero after lifting a car off her father Alec and performing CPR on him after the jack that was holding up the family car slipped and sent the car down on top of him, pinning him to the ground, unresponsive.

Lauren’s sister Kristen tells CNN, “She proceeded to lift up the car, pull him out and then give him CPR.”

Lauren adds, “It flashed like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to lose my dad.’ I knew I had to get his heart beating again.”

Alec was taken to the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. He has several brokekn ribs, some numbness and other fractures and is still in intensive care, but it is likely he suffered no permanent damage.

“He is walking and talking and laughing and joking,” says Kristin. “He’s feeling pretty good.”
