Sisters lift 2,000 pound tractor to save their father's life

LEBANON, Ore. -- Two sisters used their strength to save their father's life when he was trapped under a tractor.

They were at his home in Oregon when his daughters heard him scream for help.

The girls say adrenaline and God gave them the strength to save their father's life.

The man was trapped under a 2,000 pound tractor that was crushing his chest and arm.

"When I started screaming I honestly had no idea if anyone would find me until it was way too late," said Jeff Smith, father.

The daughters thought their father was going to die.

They started counting and lifting and were able to lift the tractor enough to get their father out. 

He went to the hospital with just a few broken bones, some nerve damage and some scars.
