This mom had a brush with death. And she's giving credit to one man for making sure she did not die.
While Jessica Shaw was driving with her kids, a tire blowout led to her car flipping on the side of the highway in Texas. Seriously injured, she found herself lying on the grass by the side of the road. While several passerby stopped to assist, she's convinced that one man in particular dressed in blue scrubs with a stethoscope around his neck was the one that saved her.
“If it weren’t for him I would have lost my life. My kids would have lost their mother.”Posted by Yahoo Parenting on Thursday, January 28, 2016
“If it weren’t for him I would have lost my life. My kids would have lost their mother.”
"If it weren’t for him, I would have lost my life," she said. "My kids would have lost their mother."
One of her children also remembers the kind stranger.
Her 4-year-old daughter said, "I was saying, 'Mom you were in the grass, that’s the doctor, that’s the helicopter.'"
She believes she saw him a second time in the hospital where she was treated with multiple surgeries for her injuries. She wasn't able to get his name, and all she knows about him is that English is not his first language.
But as she recovers from her injuries, she is speaking out publicly and online about her "guardian angel," hoping to reconnect once again.
