There Are Miracles Performed Every Day!

4 Aug

There is no doubt that we live in a very turbulent time.  If you open the newspaper, go online, or turn on the television, the news typically only shows the darkest side of society.  You’ve heard the term, “If it bleeds, it leads.” News editors know that ratings (and their profits) go up the more they focus on violence, mass shootings, racism, and hatred.

But while a lot of bad stuff happens in the word, there is also much, much, much more good occurring at the same time.  Here is a perfect example…

On April 28th, 2016 an incredible act of heroism took place and you probably didn’t see it on the news.  It was posted on Facebook and was shared tens of thousands of times at the time this article went to press.

Nicole Morgan was out with a friend and her six-year-old son, Mickey, buying sunglasses when she put her bag on her shoulder and felt a sensation like she had been burnt with a hot poker.  She had just been stung by a bee.

It was not a big deal.  She had been stung before.  She was not allergic as far as she knew, and she scraped off the stinger that was still in her shoulder.

They stopped in another store, and that’s when things started going bad…

She was disoriented, having trouble breathing, and could not move. She thought she was going to die. Panic had set it, and it was the panic on her son’s face that may have saved her life. Here are her exact words as posted on Facebook about what happened next…

“That was of course until another man came running towards me and knelt down next to me and asked what had happened and if he could help. I told him that I had been stung by a bee and that I needed to get to the hospital and then I became unconscious (this took all of about 4 minutes from the start of the anaphylactic shock in Pick n Pay to the point where I became unconscious in the walk way at Cedar Square). This man was Obakeng Seutane. He dispersed the crowd that had gathered around me and put my hands behind my head to help open up my constricted wind pipe and then calmed my son down. He then told Mikey that he was going to take me to the hospital and got me up with the help of another man and carried/dragged me down the passage towards his car. He put me in the backseat and strapped me in (God only knows how, as I was still unconscious throughout). He put my son into the front seat, introduced himself and explained to Mikey that he was going to have to drive very fast to get his mom to the hospital (Life Hospital). Once there, I was put into a wheel chair and taken to emergency where I was administered adrenaline shot, after adrenaline shot, after adrenaline shot into my chest and various different antihistamines.”

After a lot of treatment, things got better. She wrote,  “Although I had ‘regained consciousness’, I am unable to recall anything at all from the time I fell unconscious at Cedar Square until I woke up in ICU at 19:30 that night and remember thinking to myself, Wowee, I am actually here! I am alive!!! All thanks to my son, whose terrified face caught Obakeng’s eye as he was walking past on his way to gym with his earphones on and decided that we needed his help!”

Nowadays, people tend to walk around while looking down at their smart phone and when they notice someone who needs help, they move along thinking someone else will step up. Perhaps this story will inspire more people to pay attention to their surroundings and offer aid when it’s needed.

We love helping our patients and their friends and relatives through their tough times and getting them feeling better! We are here to help you stay feeling better and looking younger! Don’t be a stranger. You really can afford Chiropractic care! Don’t wait until you can no longer move!
