Three Boca Raton officers responded to a child trapped under a car, they didn’t have time to think. So they lifted, police said, and the 6-year-old boy was saved.

It was two minutes after the 8 a.m. bell on Wednesday and the teachers were headed to class when Dominic DeRoberts, a first-grader at Verde Elementary School, got out of his grandfather’s car, the DeRoberts family said.

The boy got out the rear passenger side of Saturn Vue and his grandfather, Bill DeRoberts, started to pull away when he heard screams.
