This is why you use jack stands
Working under a 2000lb + vehicle can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. Well one man in Indiana was working on his vehicle when the suspension gave out and crushed the man’s leg. An axle had him pinned and he was unable to escape until the fire department showed up.
The firefighters used the jaws of life to lift the vehicle and remove his leg from under the car. He was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. If you work under a vehicle make sure that you use the proper safety measures to ensure this happens to you.
