Could it have been a guardian angel that stopped her fall, saving her—and the baby she didn't even know she was carrying?
A few weeks ago I was flown up to Pennsylvania to be interviewed for a Canadian TV program, William Shatner’s Weird or What?, for History Television.
The series features real-life mysteries and then examines the science, theories and evidence that attempt to explain the impossible. It’s not a debunking show but rather a discussion with credible scientists and authorities of matters that cannot be easily explained.
As an expert on angels, I was asked to speak about an astounding event: A woman was skydiving with her boyfriend when her parachute got tangled up. She fell 10,000 feet, landed on a macadam parking lot…and survived. Moreover, unbeknownst to her, she was pregnant—and guess what? Her baby also lived and is doing fine!
The incident provoked many questions: Could her and her baby’s survival be explained by divine intervention? Did an angel break her fall, bring an updraft, carry her down in gentle arms?
The woman thinks the baby was her angel—and certainly that child wanted to be born! But I think it’s just as likely that it was her guardian angel or the guardian angel of the baby she was carrying. It would be fun to know what happens to that child when she grows up—something wondrous may be afoot.
