A Drowning Child Is Saved
(Clearwisdom.net) On February 5, 2009, a family of three joined a group
of tourists from the Northwest region traveling to Sanya City, Hainan Province
in southern China. Their little boy went to play in the water, while the parents
put away the clothes he had taken off. While the parents were busy trying to
stuff the clothes into a bag, the child disappeared. The parents turned toward
the water, calling his name and looking around the area, but couldn't find him.
They realized that he may be under the water, so they searched in separate
directions. Just then, the mother remembered the life-saving verses, and began
to recite "Falun Dafa Is Good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is
Good," while the father knelt on the ground, crying out for heaven and
earth to save his child.
They saw something in the distance floating on the water's surface, but they didn't think that it was their child. They ran along the edge of the water calling out for their son until their voices became hoarse. Just then, someone said to them, "The travel agency has insurance and will cover the missing child. You could receive up to several hundred thousand yuan." The father firmly replied, "I don't want anything else, I just want my child back."
The father began to think that the search for the child was in vain, but the mother wanted to go into the water and look deeper. He told her that she could also possibly die in the sea, since neither of them could swim. In this moment of anguish, a miracle happened. The object that was floating in the distance was now moving towards them, although they had not been paying any attention while looking for their child.
It was floating toward the father. It was a body, face down with the arms and legs spread out. The father dragged the body toward the shore and turned the face upward. It was their son. His mouth was filled with sand; he had turned purple and wasn't breathing. The father was in shock, and his whole body felt weak.
A tourist with general knowledge of first aid came quickly to rescue the
child. The child's mother immediately telephoned the travel agency. A call was
placed for an ambulance, and the boy was taken to a hospital. The father called
the child's grandfather and grandmother (both Falun Gong practitioners) and
asked them to plea with Dafa's Teacher to rescue the child. The grandfather and
grandmother immediately asked the Teacher to save their grandchild. On their way
to the hospital, the mother sincerely recited, "Falun Dafa Is Good,
Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is Good." Slowly, the child started to
After an examination, the doctor determined that the child's heart, brain, lungs and eyes were severely injured. He was unconscious, and blood continued to run out of his mouth. But soon the child regained consciousness, and was able to speak, eat and get out of bed. Two weeks later, he left the hospital after a doctor's examination showed a complete recovery. The boy is now healthy and has returned to school.
The entire family was extremely grateful and said: "It was Dafa's Teacher who rescued their son from the ocean, and gave him a second life." They wanted to donate some money to Dafa but practitioners told them that they would not accept money. As long as they remembered "Falun Dafa Is Good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is Good", they would be rewarded with good fortune.
