It is not every day that one gets to save the life of someone that means a lot to them. And interestingly, we always think of angels helping us out. It could be all of us, but we would still be speaking of divine and providence. This is the story of an 8-year-old boy who managed to rescue his father, back in 2017. While that in itself would have been a commendable event, the boy claimed that angels had helped him. One could say that this was the trauma speaking- while yet another would say that this was his adrenaline. But far be it from us to discount the words of someone- just because they are a child.
The story begins with J.T. Parker, the 8-year-old in question, who was in the backyard with his brother Mason and their father, Stephen Parker. They were simply fiddling with their car when the accident took place on the 30th of July. Stephen, the father, remembered,
“We were pulling the engine out of the car, and after we got it jacked up, I climbed under there to take the axles off.

The one axle came off pretty easily, but the other side wasn’t coming off.” Soon, Stephen decided to adjust the axle of the car, but the car fell on him and started crushing him. Unfortunately, the 17-year-old Mason wasn’t around either, and it all fell to the 8-year-old to save his father- with his angels in tow.

Stephen, speaking to EastIdahoNews.com, then stated, “I yelled to J.T on the other side of the car, ‘Jack it up quick! Jack it up quick!’ I couldn’t move at all. I was totally trapped, and then I passed out. It was all in his hands, and I thought, ‘This is it. There’s no way he can jack up this car because it took my 17-year-old son and I both to jack it up the first time.” But it seems fate had other plans- one that involved angels and a 50-pound kid.
Seeing his father passed out, J.T moved quickly. He started jumping up and down on the handle of the jack. And while he weighed just 50 lbs, the car did start rising off his father. After saving his father from certain death, he ran inside and informed his brother, who then called 911. The 911 call recording was then heard by the media- and it was certainly toe-curling. Mason was urging his father to keep breathing.
