Teen Rescued From Beneath Truck By An Unlikely Savior

When a Tennessee 18-year-old was pinned beneath 5,000 pounds of truck, he called out to God for help, and help came from an unexpected source.

According to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Reporter, Sam Ray was working under his truck at his family's home when the car jack gave way, causing the vehicle to land on top of him. He yelled for help and kept reciting Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

His yelling and squirming caused Siri to come to life on the iPhone in his pocket.  Both of his arms were pinned and he used his hip to activate Siri before instructing her to call 911.

The 911 operator on the line heard him shouting and was able to send emergency responders to lift the truck off Sam. 

He was LifeFlighted to Vanderbilt with broken ribs, a bruised kidney, and several other recoverable injuries.

“We are blessed beyond measure,” his mother Laura commented, “It could have been so much worse; I could be burying my son. We’re so thankful that God has allowed us to keep him and that we are allowed to watch him continue to grow.”

One of Sam's flight nurses, Kirk Krokosky, said, "He could have been there for hours, but as fate would have it, Siri was sort of his guardian angel."

The near-death experience has prompted Sam to attend Tri-State Baptist College for a career in ministry or health care.
