In Memphis,Tennessee, a car exploded into a burst of flames and wrecked everything. However, something survived and it has witnesses saying that God was most definitely watching over this accident on that fateful day.
The incident was caught on tape that showed the car in flames with a man trapped inside. A crowd of onlookers rushed to the man’s aid and tried to free him from the burning steel trap.
Witnesses said that the man had veered off the road and hit a pole after being side-swiped by another driver.
“Everybody started getting stuff to bust the windows,” Elicia Bridgforth, a witness, told a local news outlet. ”We had to get the man out of this car.”
“All I could find was a gallon of water, so I went back and wet him so maybe it wouldn’t burn him and I could keep him as moist as possible,” another witness, Corey Kilpatrick, added.
Finally the persistent witnesses were aided by a K-9 officer and a jack iron and they were able to pull the man to safety.
Anita Irby captured the incident on cellphone video she later uploaded to Facebook. And it was what was recovered from the wreckage that made this video go viral, receiving almost 3 million views in just two days.
Moments after the man was removed from the burning vehicle, witness said that they began to hear loud popping noises. “I said, ‘This car is going to blow. Lord, please let me get this man out,’” Bridgforth commented.
What survived… this one item, that was seemingly untouched by the flames. A Holy Bible.
“That is God,” Eugene McNeil stated. “If you don’t believe it, I don’t know what to say.”
