COLUMBUS, Ohio – Do you believe in angels?
According to an Associated Press survey, 77% of Americans think angels are real, including an Ohio pastor who insists an angel saved him from a horrific accident.
“No one should’ve been able to touch the car,” said Pastor John Boston, “I shouldn’t have survived.”
The young husband and father was driving on Airport Rd in Columbus, Ohio in April 2015 when another car crossed the center line and came barreling toward him.
Pastor Boston swerved to miss the vehicle and struck a utility pole, sending a live transformer crashing onto his car.
Immediately the metal and glass began to buckle on the intense heat from thousands of volts of electricity.
“The windshield was melting,” said Pastor Boston, “The passenger window was folding into the car.”
Boston, who had recently accepted a position with Central Seventh Day Adventist church and moved to the city with his wife Carla and their young 4-year-old daughter Riley, was trapped inside the burning car.
He says the seat-belt was stuck and door wouldn’t open.
That’s when a “scruffy looking” stranger came out of nowhere and he says, easily opened the smashed door.
He says the man removed him from the car and walked him 20 yards away from the vehicle to safety, just before it exploded in flames.
“He said my name is Johnny, the police are almost here and I can’t be here when they get here but you’re gonna be okay,” said Pastor Boston. “And then the man was gone.”
First responders arrived and rushed Pastor Boston to the Grant Medical Center where he was treated for what turned out to be only minor injuries and questioned him about the mysterious man.
He says people tried to rationalize the situation and thought maybe the circuit breaker tripped and Johnny fled because of sketchy past.
However, even firefighters say there are some aspects of what happened that defy logic, reason and science.Video at link.
