“I think I can lift you up there and lock you out. But you’re going to have to trust me.”
Because I don’t have a knee on it, my left leg was no help at all. I told her, “I’m going to squat down on one leg as you come at me, and put my hand level and as close to my shoulder as I can. And I’m going to have to put my hand below your belly button, so I have more of your pelvis to distribute the weight evenly. In one movement, I will press you up.” I told her I was going to have to push up straight from my shoulder.
“You’re gonna have to come at me. I will put my hand out, then you’re going to have to let your body go over my shoulder. And let me press you up.” That took a lot of trust on her part. We took a deep breath and went for it. She came at me, I went down to one leg, and boom! The cameraman shouted, “Oh shit!” Our producer Alex said, “Oh my God!” It was awesome. We were going to use that at some point. But it wasn’t time.”
