DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A man and his kids have some good samaritans to thank for their rescue, after the group managed to lift an entire truck.

People in the area heard a series of crashes, and then heard a man scream that he was trapped under an overturned truck. The incident happened about a week ago with a collision on Peavy and Garland Road in Dallas.

In an act of superhuman strength, with absolutely no discussion between them, a group of about a dozen people started working as one to lift the truck.

The man was able to squirm free, but the crisis wasn't yet over. his kids were still in the truck, and he begged the group to help them. 

The people kept pushing and lifting until the truck was once again right side up. 

Those rescuers say they were each glad to be there when help was needed.

It's still not clear how that man and his kids are doing now.​
