A Florida man named Kenny Franklin is being heralded a HERO after saving a Florida Highway Patrol Trooper’s life- by literally lifting up a car that the trooper was pinned under! 

We are talking super human strength!

It all started when Franklin was taking an Uber to work when suddenly the Uber driver suffered a seizure while driving on the highway.



“His foot is accelerating on the gas, and instantly, I’m in the back seat wondering, ‘Okay, my life is pretty much over at this point,'” Franklin explained to Fox 13 Tampa.

He was able to safely get the car to the side of the road. Franklin says that’s when the driver awoke in a panic.

“He didn’t know where he was at, so he tried to put the car into a gear, and so he’s fumbling with the car,” said Franklin.

He jumped out of the car, and behind them was a Florida Highway Patrol Trooper, Jack Hypes.


“He starts walking up towards me, to assist and assess the situation,” explained Franklin. “As he does that, the driver mistakenly puts the car in reverse and hits the officer.”

Trooper Hypes was pinned underneath the vehicle and Franklin knew he had to jump into action!

“Adrenaline was racing,” said Franklin. “Your heart, you know, is going a million miles an hour, and all you’re thinking about at that time is this, this needs to end well.”

Incredibly, Franklin was actually able to lift the vehicle off of Trooper Hypes. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.


All three men involved will be okay. FHP commended Franklin, and some would even consider him a hero.

“Honestly, I was just somebody who was in a position to help, in the right place at the right time. I’m glad that, you know, I had something to do with lives being preserved.”

Wow! This man is a bonafide HERO!!!

Kudos to Mr. Franklin for saving both the trooper and the Uber drivers lives!

God Bless.
