Scary moments in Sherman this morning as fire officials say just after 10 am a man was unloading a lift from a trailer, when the lift tipped over, trapping him underneath.

Thankfully, his 12 year old son was able to cut some of the straps and called 911.

Fire crews arrived and used the Jaws of Life to free the man.

He was flown to parkland hospital in Dallas, where he's being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

    No doubt some scary moments for this young man. I'm so proud that Dad is going to be OK. God Bless you both. Such a heart warming story. I hope the son get's a nice raise in his allowance.
