STILLWATER, Okla. — Two young Oklahoma kids were in the right place at the right time when their neighbor had a terrifying accident.

Emma and Josh Kuehl were playing in their yard in Stillwater Saturday when they heard a man yelling for help.

They stood on a chair to look over the fence and saw a man pinned under a jeep after the jack slipped.

They ran to their mom, who called for help.

The two said hearing the man's voice frightened them.

"I was scared because I didn't know where he was," Emily Kuehl said.

"I was scared," Josh Kuehl added.

The mother waited with the man until fire crews came and freed him with the jaws of life.

The neighbor is now back at home and doing well.

And he's expected to make a full recovery.
