SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (April 25, 2015 — A Utah woman said she got a feeling Monday morning that something was wrong with her husband. So she rushed home and ended up saving his life.

According to FOX13, Scott Mayhew, 43, was inside his garage working on his car, when the vehicle fell off the jack and crushed his chest.

He tried yelling for help, but no one heard him. He laid trapped under the jack for an hour and a half.

Scott’s wife Nicole Mayhew was at work at the time of the accident. Nicole told FOX13 she got a funny feeling she needed to see her husband. “I just said I need to go check on him working on the car I just believe a spirit told me,” Nicole said.

As soon as Nicole pulled into the driveway she knew something was wrong. “I thought, ‘it’s on him, it’s got to be on him, the car,’ that’s what’s in my head, so I knew immediately,” said Nicole.

Her instinct was correct. She ran into the garage to find her husband and father of their five children, lying underneath the Ford Explorer.

Nicole called 911, and Scott was flown to University of Utah Hospital. Police said there was concern of possible internal bleeding, but fortunately Nicole got there in time.

Nicole told FOX13, “He said he kept praying for me to come home. I believe that you know there’s angels around us and my religion, my Heavenly Father was with him.”

Scott Mayhew suffered six broken ribs but is expected to make a full recovery.

A fund has been set up to help the family. Click here for more information.
