22-year-old Mindy Tran of Lawrence, Massachusetts is a SUPER HERO and a SUPER MOM!
Earlier this month, Mindy was backing her Honda Accord into her garage, and got out to deal with her twin two-year-old daughters in the backseat. While unbuckling her daughters, somehow the car came OUT of gear and started ROLLING down their driveway!
Since Mindy’s driveway is very steep and leads right into a busy street of traffic, she barely had any time to react.
Quickly, Mindy jumped in front of the car, laid down on the ground, and let her car RUN OVER HER! She says, quote, "I used my body as a speed bump to stop the car."
Mindy’s quick thinking to jump in front of the car WORKED, as her car stopped right on top of her! One of Mindy’s neighbors saw the event, rushed over to get the girls out of the car, and called 911.
The fire department was able to lift the car off Mindy by using an airbag. She was then airlifted to a hospital with a shattered left knee, a dislocated right hip, and a dislocated shoulder. She's still in the hospital, and will probably be there for a few more weeks, but she is expected to recover nicely.
She told reporters, quote, "I don't consider myself a hero. I am just a mother."
