Story excerpt:

"Students and teachers at Pickens Technical College entered the Weld It Forward contest, taking on a personal project to build a proper ramp for one of their own.

They installed it at his house on Friday so he can easily go in and out while using a wheelchair.

'My body was all twisted up,' said Noah Williams, 18, a student at Pickens. 'I remember the fire department putting a blanket over my head and the fire department starting to cut me out of my truck.'"
