2Teen Sisters Pull Dad Out from Underneath a 3,000 lb. Tractor
Hannah and Halyee Smith had just returned to their home in Lebanon, Oregon when they heard a cry for help in the backyard. It was their father, Jeff, who had been trying to pull out a tree stump with a tractor when it overturned and trapped him underneath. The two girls, 14 and 16, rushed over. They called 911, but Jeff was having difficulty breathing due to the pressure on his chest. The two girls worked together and lifted the 3,000 machine high enough for their father to wriggle his torso out. He was pulled out by a neighbor's tractor, but he credits his daughters' quick action to saving his life. According to the NY Daily News, the family has kept the tractor but they have given it the nickname “Satan.”

Mother Klan Cleefman was on fire, and while she was rolling around on the ground to douse the flames, she yelled for her son to rescue the girls.
