Her aunt, Tedra Hunt, is calling the rescue a miracle.

"She was really heavy, and I could only get the top part of her out, and then her other daughters ran over and helped me get her out, and so, Allison was able to do that on her own," Hunt told KRISTV. "It's a miracle." 

Tracy spent the weekend recovering in the hospital and was reportedly back home with her family--and superhero daughter--by Tuesday.
