The impact left Bauer pinned underneath the truck.
Denmark said he broke the window and crawled in.

“I said, 'Ma’am can you breathe?’ And I heard a faint, ‘No,’ like she was running out of air, so I figured I had no choice.”
Denmark said a man on the scene warned against flipping the truck, saying it could make her injuries worse.
But they -- and two other men -- started lifting, believing it was the only way to save her.
“We flipped the truck over,” Denmark said. “And when we did, you see her she had this big breath of air.”
From there, they were able to get Bauer out, and rescue crews rushed her to a hospital.
Denmark and Whitcher aren’t sure what came over them in those moments of panic.
“Split second decisions that happened to be good ones,” Whitcher said.
“I don’t know what kicked into gear or what made me jump in there, but whatever it was it’s nice to know that she’s alive,” Denmark added.
Doctors said remarkably, Bauer doesn't have injuries from the neck down, and they expect a full recovery.
She and her family want to meet every person who helped her that day.
