Well, in light of the fire rescue, this one doesn't go
“Lifting a car off a man is not like lifting a cardboard box; a car is heavy,” said the grandfather of a motorcyclist who died in New York last Thursday, going on to say he forgave the firefighters who accidentally allowed a car to fall on his grandson. Whether or not that death was the result of the car falling is being debated. The fire department claims Karam Rampersaud was killed in the initial accident, but eyewitnesses say they saw him moving and gesturing for help as he lay trapped.
Responding to the scene, firefighters began to use inflatable lifts in an attempt to extricate Karam. They appear to follow correct protocol, using wooden blocks to prevent the car from falling as it’s lifted. Then it all goes wrong.
“The firemen were arguing with one another,” said another witness. “When they were lifting the car, it dropped right down on him.”
One of the firefighters allegedly shouted “What the fuck is wrong with you?” just after the car fell.
The Taurus driver has been issued a summons for failure to yield.
