Angel rescued sick girl – true story!

This incident happened in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, in September 2008. 14-year-old Chelsea Barton was born five weeks prematurely which resulted in developmental disabilities and serious health problems all her life.

Chelsea got sick very easily and going back and forth to the hospital very often. In 2008, she caught pneumonia and was eventually put on life support at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Doctors told Chelsea’s mother that there was no hope for young Chelsea’s recovery.

The family gathered one last time in Chelsea’s hospital room to say their goodbyes and the order was giving to disconnect her from the life support system and “just let nature take its course.”

It appeared that Chelsea had another visitor just after the life support was disconnected!

As her mother waited for the girl to take her last breath, an image of bright light appeared on the hospital’s security monitor screen. Within an hour, the dying girl began a recovery that doctors were at a loss to explain.

The mother and other workers noticed an image of an angel in light on the security surveillance monitor near the hospital room door and the mother managed to capture the image with her cell phone camera.

The mother told that at first she thought that it was the angel-of-death coming to take her daughter but shortly afterwards Chelsea started showing signs of improvement.

It would be another two months before Chelsea finally left the hospital to return home but her mother is so convinced that Chelsea was saved by divine intervention.

God is real and does care for us!

    Amen & Amen I believe the entire story from beginning to end is absolutely how Jesus deals with His children and the pic of the Angel I wholeheartedly believe and support Amen. And yes medical science can only do so much coz they only know so much. When Jesus come the tempter’s power is broken. Amen God bless.

    I’m sure which God doesn’t do it in this way. An angle is not shown like this. It is just your imagination of an angle. You see a light and everything finished? It should be proofed. How do you know if it is an angle? In Islamic countries it is almost a crime if say something like this without a strong evidence. Muslims proof Allah’s existence in extremely perfect ways. They’ll really persuade you which (IF somebody read it) there is something called Allah, what about you?

    Touched story! God is real and I believe in Him. He may send His angels to one but someday it will come to everybody. Chelsea is very lucky. I pray that you live long Chelsea! Whatever you do, wherever you are… just don’t forget about the lord above, say thank you to Him for each day…

  • Alyssa May 28, 2013, 5:24 am

    This is a very good story. It is a story that TELLS the readers to LOVE and BELEIVE in GOD! And that he will send an angel or a kind person to help those in need.

  • Noeme D. Catayas March 6, 2013, 7:48 am

    I believe in angels and God’s awesome interventions…

  • Ashley December 14, 2012, 1:15 pm

    The only things that aren’t correct about this whole ordeal is the lady who said Jesus was born in December. It’s a huge misconception.

    I just wish more people looked up things about Christ and his life. There’s no way Jesus was born in the winter time.

    And another thing was what the guy in the interview said. We can not be angels. But we can be influenced by spirits, whether they be positive or negative. So if you ever get a gut feeling to help someone out or to stay away from a certain person, it’s not you being an angel, it is your spirit being led by another spirit source that knows. After all we are just spirits inhabiting a body.

    I don’t believe in angels being people from past lives because that would defeat the purpose of eternal salvation in Heaven. We only live once on this Earth. We don’t come back as guardians.

    I do believe in angels, especially after my spiritual experience last night and I the story of the mother and her child was inspiring.

    It was faith restoring and beautiful.

    Really really touching story. God loves Chelsea. That’s why He sent the angel to give her the life back. Thank you Jesus. We have faith in you.
