A man owes his life to a total stranger not just once, but twice in the 8 years.
Christopher Manacci from Ohio was driving along Washington Street in Auburn Twp on Saturday at 11 pm when he saw a van pulling off a fishing boat that has a flat tire i the side of the road.
“I dropped my wife off and decided that I’d bring him a can of Fix-a-Flat for his tire so he could make it to a gas station”, Manacci said.
Manacci then pulled his Lexus car behind the van and parked on the grass with lights on.
While outside his car, he saw the man outside his van with his 15-year-old son when suddenly a truck hits his car. The truck became airborne, skidded along the highway and missed the men in merely three feet.
“A truck that we didn’t actually even see coming was moving at a very high rate of speed, and struck my car, and the truck became airborne and landed about three feet beyond where he was standing, him and his son”, Manacci said.
In the police station the truck driver was found drunk, brought to the hospital and will be facing criminal charges due to drunk driving.
Manacci, told the man, Gerald Gronowski that he was a nurse practitioner. Gronowski then recalled that about 8 years ago, a nurse practitioner helped him when he had a very bad injury with a fish hook. The nurse practitioner kayaked up and helped him get rid of the hook.
Manacci had his memories helped him and also recalled that it was him.
“You just never know what the day brings you and you never know, you never know what small thing you will do that will result in a miracle”, Manacci told the reporters.
