Can you pull a 55,000 lb fire truck?
NEDERLAND -Imagine pulling a 55,000 pound fire truck. That's what southeast Texans did raising money for the Special Olympics.
Teams at Jack Brooks Regional airport competed to see who could pull a Fire truck the fastest.
Contestants mustered all their strength to pull the truck 50 feet.
