Stuntman Steve Wolf shows elementary students at LeBlanc Elementary how using pulleys makes it easier to lift someone like LeBlanc Elementary teacher Leah Trahan. Holding her up are students Seth Noegel, Blake Henson, Reed Guarino and Phillip Summers. Wolf then gives the rope to Regan Granger, the girl in the white shirt, so she can hold up the teacher by herself thanks to pulleys.
