Police on Long Island rescued a man trapped under his car early Tuesday morning.

Authorities say 51-year-old Robert Powers was changing a flat tire in a CVS store parking lot in Holbrook, Suffolk County, when the jack slipped and his Ford Suburban came down on top of him.

Three police officers used a hydraulic jack to lift the vehicle and free him.

He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
