Why did he wait 3-5 minutes to call for help? I hope he will come out of this okay.

I don't know if I missed something in this story..but if the police were able to grab his feet and pull him out, why didn't his friend do that instead of waiting 3 - 5 minutes to call for help. My prayers are with this man that he makes a complete recovery.

I pray for his full recovery. Most of the time people will panic in situations like this, instead of staying calm and trying to do what is best in a frightening situation.

I was thinking the same thing. Not much of a friend. Hopefully, he will be OK.

I don't know too many people who can lift something/someone who weighs as much or more then they do. Can you lift your own body weight, or more?

I think it's a little too early to pass judgement on the friend! He may have been elderly or too short to reach or maybe not strong enough. I'm sure he feels horrible enough as it is! My prayers are with the injured man as well as his friend and family!! God bless!

I'd be willing to bet all the posters on here throwing rocks at the friend are those who would be first to suffer a complete mental breakdown in a moment of high crisis. COWARDS is what you people are.

agree - one person generally could not do this lift alone - I'm glad the cops did not just wait for the fire department to extracate him.
