Little Big Shot: Strong kid Phoenix Hunter

MANSFIELD, OH (WCMH) - This week's NBC4 Today Little Big Shot is a true definition of that. He's already traveled across the world to show off his skill and he's right here from Ohio!

Phoenix Hunter, 8, has already been on "Little Big Shots" starring Steve Harvey on NBC4 in Los Angeles. And last week, he traveled to Australia to tape that country's version of the show.

So what is his talent? He can pull full-size trucks. In Los Angeles, he pulled a 6,500 lb. Ford F-150 truck 50 feet. It's a talent he learned he could do simply by taking a bet.

"I was with my dad and his friend said I probably couldn't pull his truck and I did,"said Phoenix. "My dad already had a harness but not like a real tight one and then they strap to be up and that's how I pulled it."

And now, he is in demand, including with NBC4 Today. We met up with him in Mansfield to see him in action, challenging him to pull a Chevy Silverado at Graham Automall. You can watch him pull off the amazing feat in the video above!
