We all have been through circumstances in which we have experienced or heard of some very mysterious miracles that are hard to believe. A similar case happened back in 1980 in Lengby, Minnesota with a woman named Jean Hilliard. This might not make sense but it actually happened and there are authentic sources that proves this case.
According to the case, Jean was frozen to death and came back to life miraculously. Doctors were also stunned and had no solid reasoning as to how this happened, however the story is 100% legit.
According to Unbelievable Facts, “It was December 20, 1980 when Jean Hilliard’s (19) automotive skidded on an icy road and lurched into a ditch. She was headed to her home after being at a friend’s when this happened.”
At such a temperature of -22 degrees, it seems nearly impossible to survive and that too for 6 hours. Jean was driving to her home after meeting her friend. It was night time and the car suddenly slipped and feel into a ditch. At this time Jean wasn’t hurt at all.
“She got out of the car and started walking on a gravel road to reach someone she knew lived nearby.”
It was more sensible to stay inside the car until help came but Jean thought she might freeze to death. So, she decided to walk to a friend’s home that was nearby. But with 22 degrees below zero this distance was quite a large one and she had to walk against the wind due to which her legs started to freeze.
“Jean collapsed on the foot of her friend’s driveway after walking 2 miles in the snow.”–Unbelievable Facts
Jean told that when she saw her friend’s driveway from a distance all of the sudden she collapsed due to tiredness and couldn’t move at all. This was 1 AM midnight and there was all snow around her with no sign of anyone nearby to help her.
At this point she started to freeze and laid there for 6 straight hours in an unconscious state. Even her body turned into an ice sculpture.
At 7 AM in the morning, her friend, Wally Nelson, to whom Jean was struggling to reach, walked out and saw her. At first she thought she is dead and even got afraid because her frozen face appeared more like a ghost.
However, “She was taken to the Fosston Municipal Hospital at around 8 where doctors had no idea about how to save her. Her body was unresponsive to any form of medical care.”
The doctors examined and said that she is still breathing really slowly with only 8 heartbeats per minute. They also said that there is barely any space to insert a thermometer for checking the temperature as she was frozen and rock solid. No joints were moving and not even a needle could be pierce through her skin. The eyes were totally unresponsive to light and it seemed like she is completely dead. The doctors quickly placed warm and moist packs around her body to increase the temperature.
“It was around 1 PM, when Jean started making noises and requested for water. Miraculously, she came back to life after her mother held her hand and prayed.”
Finally the next night, she was able to move her hands and arms and after 3 days her legs were also moveable. There were no amputations required as doctors said that she might lose both the legs but this proved out to be wrong.
Jean spent 6 straight days in ICU before she was shifted to a normal room in the hospital.
“After 49 days, Jean was discharged from the hospital and she was as good as new!”
This is quite strange and there seems no possible reason as to how she survived but still it is a miracle. She suffered no injuries and was discharged in a perfect way.
