High school baseball team lifts car off girl

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Sixteen members of a Northern California high school baseball team ran from a practice to save a 16-year-old girl who was pinned under a car, working together to lift it off her while their coach pulled her to safety.

The girl, a student visiting Valley High School in Elk Grove from another school for an afterschool activity on Wednesday afternoon, was pinned under the car when her mother accidentally backed over her after dropping her off in the school parking lot, Sacramento police said told KCRA-TV.

The team, in the middle of their last practice of the season, heard her cries for help and ran to her.

“We all just ran out there as a team,” varsity coach James Millholland told the TV station. “There was no one really saying much. The guys just got around the car and then everyone just lifted it up.”

Players said it wasn’t difficult to lift the four-door sedan off the girl while their coach pulled her out.

“With all the teamwork we had going on it didn’t feel heavy,” said player Sukhminder Gill. “It felt like we could pick anything up right now. The adrenalin was pumping up.”

The girl, whose name has not been released, was home from the hospital Thursday. Her exact injuries were not clear, but she’s expected to recover.

Players said it was a satisfying way to help finish their season.

“I felt like we were heroes,” Ysidro Castro said. “We did something that actually saved the day.”
