A 77-year-old woman was rescued from dire straits earlier this week thanks to a man who is apparently living up to his namesake.
Chris Miracle works for his family’s towing company in Manntown, Florida. He had been driving through town at 2AM last week when he saw some flashing lights shining through the brush on the side of the road.
He only noticed the lights because he had been keeping a sharp eye out for deer – but after he had already driven one mile past the mysterious flashes, he couldn’t help but feel like he had to turn around and investigate.
It’s a good thing that he did, too. Miracle drove back to the spot where he had seen the lights and discovered that there was a car plunged halfway into a creek 40 yards from the road with its hazards on.
Miracle approached the car and found a 77-year-old woman inside. Upon asking her if she was okay, she explained how she had veered off the road because of an adverse reaction to her medication. Without any cell phone to call for help, she simply had to turn on her hazard lights and wait.
After Miracle called emergency responders to the scene, he used his tow truck to pull the woman’s car out of the creek.
The woman was reportedly released from the hospital earlier this week in good condition, and Miracle says that he is glad he trusted his instincts; if no one else had spotted her hazard lights in the dark, then she may have been stuck in her car until daytime, making it even more difficult for anyone to see her vehicle through the brush.
“I mean the timing was just impeccable,” Miracle told News 4 JAX. “[I think it was] God’s work. Right place, right time – it was meant to be.”
