A young woman summoned up the strength to lift a car more than 20 times her body weight to free a trapped friend, despite being injured herself.

Kyla Smith, from Sunderland, was driving her MG ZR hatchback near Washington when it left the road and hit a tree.

Passenger Jonathon Connor's leg was stuck under the car as it rolled over.

So the 23-year-old lifted the car to allow him to escape, unaware that she had injured her back in the crash.

Ms Smith said: "I lost control of car, it hit a pile of bricks, which hit the steering arm and made wheels head for a tree. We hit the tree and the car came down on the passenger side.

Adrenalin can do some amazing things. When I was in high school, there was a fire in the home of a 75 year old woman. She ran inside the house and carried out her refrigerator.

Yep adrenalin can do amazing things! I lifted a wooden cot off the ground and threw it across the room thinking my baby was wedged under it as she wasn't in the cot. It was a cot that I normally couldn't lift on my own.

*blush* I found my 7 month old daughter playing quite happily in my 3yr olds room...exactly where I had put her half an hour before...yes I was sleep deprived...

That story isn't all that amazing. I've heard stories like that for as long as I can remember. I've even seen amazing events such as that.
Adrenaline is a powerful thing!
