    Bedford.

    Various shots show a quick-lift device for car accidents being demonstrated. First we see an upside down crashed car against a wall. The arm of an injured person is seen sticking out from underneath the car. Inflatable rescue apparatus is placed under the car instead of a jack. Two firemen run over with a box and connect hose to the rescue apparatus. The other end is fitted to the exhaust pipe of the fire engine. C/U of man's foot on accelerate pedal. The exhaust fumes inflate the apparatus, which lifts up the crashed car. Firemen work to free the crash victim from the vehicle and put them on a stretcher.
