This is an account from when I was roughly 14 or 15. My mom was driving me to an evening youth group / bible study at our church's youth house. On our way to my youth group we were stopped at a stoplight when out of nowhere the loudest screeching of tires I had ever heard shattered the silence. We instantaneously looked to our left just in time to see a car hit a V shaped median, go airborne and slam in to a telephone pole and utility box.
Being that I am the type of person in a fight or flight situation -'I FIGHT'. I had been a lifeguard for two years at that point so I figured I may be able to help if there is something life threatening wrong. I opened the door and bolted across the big intersection to see if I could help that was in the car. All the while my mom is yelling at me. She pulled off in to the grass and eventually caught up to me. It turned out that the victim was a male, probably in his mid thirties. I was the first to arrive at this mans car. He was unconscious but was breathing. I reached in and turned his engine off. I did not want to move him, not knowing if there was a spinal injury. And since there was no sign of any further risk of injury we waited for the EMS. He was in bad shape, both ankles appeared to be broken and he was breathing but it was labored.
Now to this day I cannot explain what I saw but my mom and I held on to his hand / arm and prayed for this man. While doing so, I opened my eyes and looked at him. When I did - I saw a white milky colored smoke pouring and rising out from his face and upward toward the sky. It was not smoke from like a cigarette or anything. The best I can describe is a pure milky white 'smoke' being pulled out of him. I asked my mom if she saw it and she has always said no, she did not.
I wonder if it was his spirit leaving temporarily so that he would not feel the pain - shock?
We tried calling the hospital the next day but could not find out if he had passed away or not. I feel in my heart that he did not pass away. I wish I knew. I still went on to youth group after that but the whole incident shook me to my very core. Life is precious and too short. I'm getting emotional right now typing this. Anyways, thanks for reading my story. Take care.
Peace and Love To You All
