Allen Clemmons of Sumpter, South Carolina, was working on his Mustang in his backyard on Saturday afternoon. As he attempted to remove the transmission, the car slid off the jack holding it up and fell onto Clemmons.
For the next hour he called out for help, but no one responded.
"I was having a really hard time breathing with it on top of me," Clemmons told WIS. "I asked God to help me, to give me one more holler and send an angel by my way. The last holler before I give up."
After letting out that last holler, Clemmons saw 9-year-old Malachi running toward him.

When Malachi got close enough to see what had happened, he immediately grabbed a nearby jack and with the help of Clemmons guiding him, was able to get it back under the car. From there, he began pumping the two-foot pole until the car was raised off of Clemmons.
After relieving Clemmons of the weight of the car, he ran back to his aunt's house to get help. Shortly after, people were able to pull Clemmons out from underneath the car. He was flown to a nearby hospital for his injuries.
"I have six broken ribs and a fractured pelvis. My shoulder is also banged up." Clemmons said.
"I don't think I would have survived another 30 minutes, it was getting really hard to breathe. He is truly my guardian angel."
