Kansas’ spirit squad lifted a car off trapped man

Kansas was awfully cool under pressure on Sunday.

The men’s basketball team completed a wild rally against Purdue, while the members of the school’s spirit squad performed an even more impressive feat.

It lifted a car off an injured man.

As they were preparing to board the team bus to watch the women’s team play an NCAA tournament Nebraska, they heard someone yell for help from a nearby parking lot. A man was trapped under a Cadillac that has rolled off a jack.

So nine members lifted the car high enough for him to crawl out. He was bloody and disoriented, but OK.
