Joy Break: Miracle Rescues 77-Year-Old Woman After She Drove Into a Creek
When we turn on our television or smart phones we are bombarded with news that brings us down. Where are all the good stories? Those stories are still there. Here’s one that we hope will bless you.
It was a miracle that rescued a 77-year-old woman from possible injury after she drove off the road into a creek earlier this week.
Chris Miracle (yes, that’s his real name) of Miracle Towing and Recovery was headed out at 2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning to tow another vehicle, when he noticed a flashing light behind a church in the Manntown community in Baker County, Florida. About a mile after he passed it, he realized something wasn’t right, he told The Stream. “There’s nothing at that church that flashes,” Miracle thought. So he turned around and headed back. As he got out and walked back through the brush, he realized that he was seeing car tail lights flashing. The car was partially in the creek.
Praying for a Miracle
“I opened up the back door and a woman was sitting in the front seat. She couldn’t get out because her driver’s door was blocked by the mud bank and the passenger door was blocked by a tree.” She wasn’t able to climb between the seats to get out the back door. She didn’t have a cell phone. “So, she just turned off the car, turned on her flashers, turned on her gospel music,” and prayed someone would find her, explained Miracle. She’d been there at least an hour.
Since they were unable to get her out, Miracle hooked up to the car and pulled it out with the woman inside. Once out of the creek, first responders were able to transport her to the hospital. The woman told Miracle that she’d had the accident due to a problem with her medication.
After the hospital released her the following day, she stopped by Miracle Towing and Recovery to pick up her car.
Miracle said that a higher power was at work. He believes God helped him find the woman.
As far as being a hero, Miracle said he isn’t one. “I’m an everyday guy that [saw] something that wasn’t right, had a gut feeling and turned around.”
“I was just glad I found her,” he added. “I was just glad she wasn’t left there. It was a blessing.”
