The NFL wide receiver of Minnesota Vikings, K.J. Osborn, proclaimed that “God is real” after rescuing a man from a burning car.
K.J. Osborn Rescues Man From Burning Car
In a recent Twitter post, K.J. shared photos of a car accident he witnessed while traveling in Austin, Texas. The caption wrote, “Right Place Right Time.”Apparently, the NFL player happened to pass by a vehicle that crashed into the pillars of the freeway overpass. Thankfully, four people, including K.J., immediately took action to rescue the driver inside the burning car.
“Most of the time, the saying goes ‘wrong place, wrong time,'” he wrote. “But this time I believe God had me, us, at the right place at the exact right time.”
He also shared photos of the three heroes with him who helped rescue the victim.
“Last night myself and these 3 absolute hero’s helped save a man’s life by rescuing him from a vehicle up in flames after a bad crash,” he said. “A situation I’d never imagine being a part of in a million years.”
In the end, K.J. remarked in his post that “God is real. And His LOVE is real. He will send angels to be camped around you and provide you with his grace and mercy.”
Right Place, Right Time
According to CBN, it was around two in the morning when the incident happened on an expressway. The vehicle crashed into a pole that ignited a flame.
In an interview with K.J. on Monday, he told ESPN he was “visiting friends” in Austin. Then one night, as he traveled in an Uber car, they witnessed an explosion on the road. So, his Uber driver pulled over.
“I didn’t even know if he was alive when we walked up to the car,” he told ESPN. “Without that, I think that car would have burned on fire, and it would have been really tragic.”
K.J. and the three other Good Samaritans were able to pull out the victim from the burning car.
“That’s when I picked him up,” the wide receiver said. “He’s bleeding all over my shirt and everything, and I pick him up and I carry him about 10 to 15 yards so this way we’re away from the car.”Reference | CBN
