“Last night, after we left dinner in Tampa, we saw a car flip in front of us!” she wrote. “I truly admire my husband @hulkhogan and our good buddy @jakerask for springing into action, puncturing the girl’s airbag, and getting her quickly out of the car. By all appearances, she was unscathed, just really rattled, which is an absolute miracle!”
In a new tweet, Hogan reveals that he used a ballpoint pen to pop the airbags and get the girl out.
“The crazy part about the teenager that flipped her car was that without a knife to puncture the airbags to get her out, an Indian Rocks Christian ballpoint pen came in handy to pot the bags. Thank you, God, all is well even now, Amen. HH.”
