A family in Ely, Nev., is having an extra special Thanksgiving weekend.

After Matt Jacoby got pinned under his car, his 7-year-old daughter sat on a jack and pumped it until her dad could get free.

Jacoby was installing a transmission in his car when the accident happened.

He said the front wheels were on ramps and railroad ties when the car accidentally moved and the emergency brake released. The car rolled down the ramp and Jacoby was pinned beneath it. Although he was having trouble breathing, Jacoby called to Shelby and told her to bring the jack."

It's amazing she was able to save my life," he said.
