In Colombia, a selfless mother sacrificed her life to save her baby from a tragic plane crash; she tightly embraced him with her body and the baby miraculously became the lone survivor of the crash.
The Plane Crash
The mother, Mayerly Diaz Rojas, her husband, Fabio Grandas, and nanny, Nuris Maza, boarded the plane from Santa Marta for Guaymaral. Fabio, also a popular doctor in the area, piloted the plane. Then hours later, the aircraft crashed in Ubate, Colombia.
When the rescue responders found the site of the crash, what they witnessed made them shudder. Baby Martin, the baby son lone survived the plane crash. But what moved everyone was they found him cradled safely in his mother’s arms, who died. She shielded him through her own body, wrapping him around her, sacrificing her life for her son. The heartbreaking sight brought everyone to tears.
It must have been a terrifying moment for the passengers aboard. Though it’s bewildering that the baby miraculously survived despite the tragic crash, the deceased parents must have still rejoiced. Because they truly intended him to live safe and sound.
According to the report, it is still not clear why the plane crashed. But the aircraft was able to declare an emergency before it went down. In the initial investigation, the crew couldn’t find any technical issues.
“According to initial information, the airplane had all of its technical documentation up to date,” the aviation authority reported.
Martin and his two siblings will now grow up without parents. But surely, God protected them and will take care of them.
Let’s pray for the survived family members, and may God’s peace and comfort rest in their home.
This news may be heartbreaking, but the mother’s sacrificial love for her child gives us a perfect picture of Jesus sacrificing His life for us to live and not die from our sins.
What great love!
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” –John 15:13
