A paraglider credits God for placing him in the perfect place to save a woman from drowning when her car submerged in the water.
Paraglider Spots Drowning Car And Woman
Paragliding is Cristiano Piquet’s hobby. One day, as he was gliding through the skies in Miami, South Florida, on Sunday afternoon, an unexpected scene caught his eye. He saw a car submerged in water from above. What’s more alarming was that he also saw a woman clinging to the vehicle. It would have only been a matter of time before she drowned along with car. So, without delay, the paraglider took action.
Cristiano made an emergency landing near the woman’s whereabouts. He immediately ran towards the woman to help her. Then a nearby resident on the other side of the canal who noticed the commotion arrived. He also rushed to help the woman before she sunk down with the car. Soon, the concerned neighbor threw a rope toward her and successfully pulled her out of the water.
Paraglider Credits God
Following that incident, Cristiano credited God for the outcome. He felt grateful that he was at the perfect moment when it happened. Or else, the woman might have helplessly drowned in the water.
Later on, the paraglider shared the story on social media. He wrote, “I’m no hero. This is not about me. All glory to God, who used me and my friends to save that one life. God’s timing is perfect.”
It’s incredible to witness God’s hand in the middle of such an incident. Indeed, no one would have noticed the drowning woman if Cristiano weren’t there. From this inspiring story, we can learn to trust God’s protection even more. As Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
“May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.” -Psalms 20:1
