Holy Cow!

I work on my car and use jackstands. I also put a second set of stands up as a safety incase I dislodge one of the primary ones.

Too painful to read after getting to the part about the rotor landing on his head I had to stop!

i haven't worked on a topaz either, but i'm assuming it is front wheel drive, so the "front of the motor(where the water pump is) is facing the passenger front wheel. take off the wheel and there is the water pump, serpentine belt......

At the very minimum, I will toss a couple of tires, rims, or any thing else handy under the car to have something to land on other than my noggin!

Was an idiot.

This kind of crap is soo sad. But happens everyday. Some people are just stupid and they pay for their stupidity. Too bad Diane Fineswine hasn't paid for her's yet.

He did. It was called his "head", which prevented the horrible malicious vehicle from falling on something important, such as his arm, tools or beer.

What a tool! People doing stupid shit like this is what makes me wish that the county would charge
people like this for the expenses incurred from rescuing them from themselves.

That's what you call FAITH: The belief that that little piece of metal is going to keep that big assed
piece of metal, aka: the car! from falling on your dumb ass while you're underneath of it trying to
work on it.

Always use solid wooden blocks, another jack, etc, in case your primary fails. (I had a concrete
block shatter when I was working on my truck, so the pucker factor is always nearby!)

Hell, I don't even trust my jack stands. If I'm getting under there and it's in the air, I'm gonna be taking off a wheel and putting it under the frame on the side I'm working.

In a car with a transverse engine, he may have been able to reach the pump through the wheel well.
