Trucker Sees Horrific Crash And Goes Running, But Notices His Dash Cam Caught A Miracle
David Fredericksen, a professional truck driver, saw a car going the wrong way on an interstate in Biloxi, Mississippi. He watched in horror as the vehicle slammed into a truck and exploded before his very eyes. His dash cam recorded the tragic crash.
Within seconds, the entire car was on fire. David prayed, left the safety of his truck, and rushed to the scene with a fire extinguisher. He was terrified of what he would find, but he didn’t hesitate to help.
“God, please don’t let me have to deal with somebody halfway burned alive, screaming,” he thought to himself.
David thought the two people inside the car — an elderly woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter — were surely dead. But then something incredible caught his eye: he saw a little head pop up in the back window.
David tried to yank the door open as the metal began to melt. He prayed even more before climbing into the back seat, where he grabbed the little girl as the fire raged on.
There are many reasons why David says what happened next is an absolute miracle.
