"He pushed it up under the car, tightened it back up, and I don't know how he did it, but that little fella -- the rod was about 2 feet long on that jack -- and he jacked that car completely up off me."
After raising the car, Malachi ran home to call 911.
Clemmons was hospitalized with six broken ribs and a fractured pelvis, but is expected to be OK.
Malachi, who said his uncle taught him how to use a jack, said he and Clemmons have a special bond now, and had a special message for him.
“Mr. Allen, I hope you feel better,” the boy said.
