An incredible story about a true miracle on Interstate 94 is making its way around the Internet this week, and I just had to share it with you.

Victor Giesbrecht, 61, and his wife, Ann, from Winnipeg, Canada, were driving last Saturday night on Interstate 94 in Wisconsin when they spotted two women standing outside their car on the side of the road. While other cars passed by, Victor pulled over, asking how he could help.

The car had a flat tire, the women said. They were struggling to remove it and put on the spare. Victor got out of his truck, rolled up his sleeves and got to work. Within minutes, he had the tire on. Grateful, the women shook Victor’s hand and thanked him.

“Someone up above put me in the right place at the right time,” Victor said.

Victor and his wife drove off. The women followed shortly afterward. They were talking about their good fortune when they saw a vehicle up ahead on the side of the road. Not just any vehicle. Victor and Amy’s truck.

The women pulled over. Victor was slumped over in the driver’s seat. Amy was panicked. “He’s had a heart attack!” she yelled.

The women sprang into action. One of them, Sara Berg, began to perform CPR. She kept it up until police arrived with a defibrillator. An emergency helicopter landed on the interstate to take Victor to the nearest hospital. Thanks to the women’s actions, Victor’s life was saved.

How did Sara know the proper procedure for CPR? It’s part of her job. She works as a nurse’s assistant.

Someone up above put Victor in the right place at the right time. Sounds like someone put Sara in the right place, too. What would have happened if she hadn't gotten that flat? What would have happened if Victor drove past, like so many others?
