If you're going to get trapped under a car, it's best to do it in the presence of nine cheerleaders -- whose job description includes holding human beings above their heads. A man found that out when the University of Kansas spirit squad freed him from the sedan he was trapped under in a Little Rock parking lot Sunday, according to a college news release.
The cheerleaders, who were in Arkansas for the National Collegiate Athletic Association women's basketball tournament, heard screaming as they were boarding a bus from their hotel to the arena. Nine of them were able to lift the sedan off the ground and free a man who was trapped when a jack failed. The man was bloody but otherwise unharmed, the release said. After their heroics, the squad cheered the Jayhawks to an upset win against the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Karma, perhaps.
