VALPARAISO | Members of the Valparaiso Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to show Immanuel Lutheran School students how they extricate people from cars that are damaged in accidents.

They removed the windows, roof, doors and ended with bending the car in half at the dash board.

Immanuel seventh-grader Evan Eckert said, “This is the coolest thing I have ever seen.”

The firefighters told students to always wear their seat belt.
