An Accident Led Us to Believe in the Power of Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) My son and I were involved in a serious car accident and it was a person who practices Falun Dafa that helped us. It was then that I understood the meaning of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and I saw the power of Falun Dafa.
The accident occurred on December 28, 2014. A crowd of people gathered at the marketplace in my hometown.
My son and I were on a motorized tricycle at an intersection, when a van hit us from behind. I flew up off the vehicle and landed on the cement. My son landed face down on the other side of the road, with the tricycle on top of him. His right ear was bleeding profusely.
A bystander said the van driver was so shook up that he had trouble using his phone to call the police. There were many people nearby, but no one came to help.
A Falun Dafa practitioner approached us. She pulled my son from underneath the tricycle while repeating “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She asked the bystanders to repeat the words too.
Together, with the help of another, they took my son to the town hospital. He was later transferred to the county hospital due to the severity of the injury.
My son's life was in danger. A CT scan was done, the doctor said my son had an intracranial hemorrhage and skull fractures, and required surgery. The doctor suggested he be sent to Beijing Central Hospital for the surgery.
The practitioner wanted to go with my son in the ambulance but there was not enough room for her so she stayed with me. She reminded my family who were accompanying my son, “Make sure you repeat 'Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!' The child will be fine, and will not need surgery.”
The doctor at the county hospital said that my left toes were fractured, my right shoulder bones were broken, and that I had a slight concussion.
The practitioner continued to repeat “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” for me, and asked me to do the same.
After the nurses put a cast on my left foot, and inserted IV needles into my arm, I was not able to use the bathroom on my own, so the practitioner helped me. She said practitioners learn to put others first.
She said that the van driver did not hit us intentionally. It would be fine as long as the driver paid for my medical expenses.
I went home at 10:00 p.m. that night. My relatives called soon after and said my son was in good condition and did not need surgery.
We settled the case with the driver amicably. I told the driver and his son about my conversation with the practitioner. They said that they were going to repeat “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day!
My son is completely recovered and living a normal life. I have truly experienced the power of Falun Dafa. No words can describe my gratitude and utmost respect toward Dafa.
