Daughter lifts car off of her father, saves his life

GLEN ALLEN, Va. -- A Virginia man is alive thanks to his daughter's strength and courage.

Alec Kornacki was working on his car when it fell on top of him.

His 22-year-old daughter Lauren saw him under the car and moved the car off his body.

"Lifted it up right here and just kind of threw it, shoved my body into it as hard as I could then I come back and dragged him out and started CPR," Lauren said.

Kornacki is recovering in the hospital with several broken ribs and other fractures.
