Man comforts son while trapped in car wrapped in power line


SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX 46 WJZY) — Heartbreaking video captured the moments a man thought he and his young son were going to die.

Terry Sanchez-Lewis, and his son Sebastian got stuck inside of their truck on I-85 Monday when a powerful storm brought a power line down. The live line wrapped around the car, trapping them inside. 

“I knew we were going to die and had accepted that, but I didn’t want him to be hurt,” Terry said in a Monday night Facebook post that detailed the incident. 

In the video, you can hear Terry trying to comfort his young son, who can be heard crying and at one point says “I hope we don’t die like this.”

Fortunately, they didn’t. Duke Power was able to come out and cut the lines so Terry and his son could get out. 

“It’s crazy just how powerful nature is! You can read about it and sort of understand but until your in the middle of it you don’t realize just how powerless you are,” Terry wrote.
