Twenty-one year old Danous Estenor stands at 6’3″ and weighs 295 lbs. The University of South Florida offensive guard used his size and strength off the field when he saved a man’s life. Danous Estenor parked his car outside the Bulls Den Café in Tampa, Florida, for a quick bite to eat when he heard screams, reported the St. Petersburg Times.
The college athlete saw Pedro Arzola, 34, father of four, stuck under a Cadillac Seville, not moving and he could not see his legs.
‘I’m thinking, “Oh, God, this guy is going to die”,’ Estenor said. ‘I tried to lift the car, and when I first tried, it didn’t budge. I backed up. I don’t know,’ Estenor told the St. Petersburg Times. But Estenor added: ‘I felt this energy come, and I lifted it. I don’t know how, but somebody pulled him from the car.’
Mr. Arzola somehow came away with only cuts, bruises and a dislocated shoulder – and was back on his day job just two weeks later.
‘I appreciate (Estenor) doing what he did, saving my husband’s life,’ Ms Uribe said. ‘If nobody helps me, I don’t know if he is in the room right now.’
USF strength and conditioning coach, Mike Golden, said he could easily name 100 NFL players who would not be able to lift up the car.
‘He just was in the right place at the right time, got that adrenaline rush and got it done,’ Mr Golden told the St. Petersburg Times.
