A mother and her baby daughter almost died after a container truck fell and crushed their sedan car!
Rima Gichoga was traveling on the Mombasa highway with her 2-year-old in Nairobi, Kenya when the accident happened.
“Were it not for my daughter, we would be dead today,” the mother of two said in an interview.
Rima decided to head out with her baby to buy some groceries. During the trip, the baby started to cry and her mom decided to park the car in a service lane to check on her. That was when the accident that almost took their lives happened.
“She usually cries a lot, and when that happens she starts throwing up, so I parked the car to check up on her. And then I saw the container as it started to tip over, I didn’t even think about it, I just grabbed the child and fell out onto the side of the car,” she said.
But the shocked mom almost didn’t make it.
“On looking, I saw the container on top of the car, and my legs were still inside,” she added.
A taxi driver nearby rushed to help them. They were then taken to the hospital to be examined.
Rima believes that since God saved her, He must have a great purpose for her life.
“I don’t know why God spared me, but I know there’s a reason. I can’t let someone else go through what I went through,” she says.
It was her baby that gave Rima inner strength in this terrifying situation.
“My baby saved me by giving me the strength to move because I wanted her to live. I keep on saying Heaven is missing an angel and they sent her to me.” Rima said.
