A Florida man came to the rescue of an elderly woman who found herself stuck in a creek after a horrific car accident. Finding himself in the right place at the right time, the hero man even had a fitting name for the occasion: “Chris Miracle.”
Chris, who runs “Miracle Automotive and Towing” company with his family said he was alerted to the incident after spotting some lights flashing in the bushes behind the local church in Macclenny, Florida.
“I’ve driven by it a thousand times, but something didn’t feel right so I turned around,” he told Fox News.
After doing a search of the area, Chris discovered a 77-year-old woman trapped in her vehicle after careening off the road into a ravine. Without any cell phone and unable to open the doors, the faith-filled woman decided to turn on some Gospel music and pray someone would find her.
In an incredible answer to prayer, the woman quickly discovered that there was a literal Miracle waiting for her!
It gets even better though — Miracle also happens to be a volunteer firefighter. So, when it comes to these types of emergency situations, he is well-trained in what to do. Making a quick assessment of the woman at the scene, Miracle called in a rescue team for immediate assistance.
He, along with the woman, is certain that the Lord was at work on what could have been a tragic night.
“There’s definitely a higher power that made me be on the road at that time to be where I was,” declared the father of two, noting that the woman was located just behind the local Manntown Church.
“There’s no better place for a miracle to happen than at the Manntown church. I mean the timing was just impeccable,” he told WJXT-TV.
The compassionate business owner then offered to tow the woman’s vehicle out of the creek, free of charge.
“She’d already gone through enough. We didn’t want to charge her anything,” Miracle said, “And she was grateful. She knew the Lord would send somebody her way. So, it was meant to be.”
In light of his incredible efforts, Miracle encouraged people to always keep an eye out for those in need.
“I just want people to stop and help. Always be willing to stop and help somebody,” he said.
Others who know of Chris and his company have been posting comments of recommendation on social media in light of this latest incident.
“Great group of guys, good family run business and very honest with their prices,” wrote David Johnson on Facebook. “I got a chance to talk to Chris while he towed me a hour away very humble man, always looking out for everyone else.”
“That’s a blessing,” another person wrote regarding the incident. “I knew this man for years. His whole entire family are good people. The good lord is most definitely going to reward you.”
