Unharmed in a Dangerous Tractor Accident
(Minghui.org) My wife and I started practicing Falun Dafa before July 20, 1999, and Master has saved our lives many times during the past 20 years. We are moved to tears whenever we recall these experiences.
He saved us again on April 28, 2016. We were driving our tractor to our field to water it. When we arrived and tried to stop, the tractor's brakes didn't work. The parking brake and the clutch also failed. The gear was in the reverse, and we were quickly heading backwards towards a trench. The trench was three or four meters deep and was filled with more than a meter of water.
My wife thought: “Master, please save us.” At that moment, the tractor rolled down into the trench, turned upside down, and was on top on me. My wife was also pulled down into the trench. I lost consciousness.
My wife later told me that she was pulled into the water. She was in a state of semi-consciousness, and she felt a large hand grab her, lift her up, and move her to the trench's bank. When she opened her eyes, she saw that she really was on the bank. She was soaked and dripping water. She then realized that Master had saved her.
My wife looked around and couldn't see me. She said: “Master, please save my husband; he is in the water.” She called my name.
I was in the water and felt some type of substance encapsulate me. It was neither cold or hot. I was lying inside it comfortably. Suddenly, I heard someone calling my name. I opened my eyes, but it was dark, and I couldn't see anything. I thought: “Where am I? Master, I want to get out.” I then saw a bright light, like a cave entrance, and I followed the light and climbed up and out of the water.
My wife saw me coming out of the water and was yelling, “Master saved us!” We couldn’t stop crying. We held onto each other. There are no words for what we were feeling. We both said at the same time: “Thank you, Master for saving our lives.”
We realized that we had a cell phone and memory card with Master's lectures in my pocket. I took them out and checked them; they were not wet at all. We thanked Master again.
The tractor was still in the water; so we called for a crane. The crane operator arrived and was shocked to see what had happened. He said he has seen many accidents like this and that the people involved were usually killed by the tractor. I told him we were both fine.
The crane operator didn't believe us at first and said, “The tractor was upside down in the trench, and it is so deep. Where are the people?” I told him we had been on it. He still didn't believe us. I showed him a small scratch on my arm and told him that the tractor had pressed on half of my body, but I climbed out.
“You should not have been able to get out even if it only pinned down a piece of your clothing, and the tractor was pressing against half your body! It really is miraculous!” he said.
“We practice Falun Dafa, and our Master saved us,” I replied. “If you know in your heart, 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good', those words will save you when you are in dangerous situations.” He nodded yes.
He smoothly lifted the tractor back onto the road. The diesel and oil in the tractor hadn't spilled out at all, and we could start the tractor. We made temporary repairs, and a relative came to help drive the tractor home.
After we arrived home, we went to Master's photo. We burned incense and bowed to Master.
