Plane pull raises money for Special Olympics

A not-so-ordinary game of tug- of- war took place at O'Hare Airport Saturday.

Nearly 30 teams from across the Chicago area grabbed a hold of a rope, bent their knees and attempted to move a 198,000-pound Airbus 20 feet.

The event was coordinated by the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run.

They raised more than $55,000, which will benefit Special Olympics Illinois.
