Dr Oz: Miracle Survival Story
While discussing near-death experiences and the intersection between science and religion, Dr Oz shared the incredible story of a woman named Valerie. When Dr Oz saw the images of Valerie’s car after it was crushed by two semi trucks, he knew he just had to meet the woman who somehow survived the accident. Dr Oz explained that first responders were working against the clock to free Valerie and get her to the hospital, and it’s what happened next that has doctors baffled.
Dr Oz: Woman’s Near-Death Experience
Valerie was traveling with her daughter on a snow day on a stretch of an Arizona highway with her daughter in 2000. She was in her SUV with her daughter, waiting out the storm when two semi trucks slammed into them. The impact hurled her daughter from the vehicle and trapped Valerie under another truck.
When people see the wreckage, they have no idea why Valerie wasn’t killed instantly. It took rescuers two-and-a-half hours to get Valerie out and once they did, she was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support. Doctors said if Valerie survived at all, she “wouldn’t be more than a vegetable.” While Valerie was in the ICU, she claims she was out of her body and her pain had stopped. “It was clear to me, that I had crossed over,” Valerie stated.
