Sometimes there’s a story that is so incredible that it goes beyond our wildest dreams. The saying “reality is stranger than fiction” often comes to mind. This story is certainly up there in with how unbelievable it is!
Angela Shymanski was driving through the Canadian Rockies after a family vacation with her daughter, 5-year-old Lexi and her son, 10-week-old Peter. Her husband had to stay at their home for work. They had just enjoyed a nice vacation in Calgary and were going back to their home in Prince George, British Columbia.
According to the CBC, Angela had put in an audio CD into the car to play a relaxing lullaby. In a horrifying twist, Angela fell asleep at the wheel. The car quickly veered off the road and tumbled down 40 feet below, into a tree right next to a creek.
Angela was immediately knocked unconscious her back was broken due to the collision with the tree. With her back broken, it seemed very unlikely that they would find help anytime soon. Although they had veered off the road, there wasn’t any signs that there had been a recent car crash on the road. But then Lexi, Angela’s 5-year-old daughter, woke up after the crash. She had a few scratches, but was relatively unharmed during the crash, miraculously.
