In a remarkable display of community spirit, around 40 people in Berlin came together to lift a city bus and rescue an 18-year-old man who was trapped under its rear tire.
The incident began when the bus driver noticed the young man and immediately stopped the vehicle.
Frank Kurze, one of the volunteers, described the scene as chaotic. "I saw people trying to lift the bus, and I knew I had to help," he told German news channel n-tv.
The collective effort soon paid off, and the young man was pulled out from under the bus.
Medical professionals, including two nurses and a surgeon, were on the scene to provide immediate first aid. The young man was responsive but appeared disoriented, according to Sandra Grunwald, one of the nurses.
"It's reassuring to know that you can still trust society to come together in times of need," she said.
The Berlin police were impressed by the quick and collective actions of the volunteers, describing them as "heroes." The young man was later taken to the hospital for surgery on his injured arm.
The incident was widely shared on social media, with the Berlin police thanking the community for their heroic efforts.
