7-Month-Old Baby Thrown 25 Feet in Car Crash Survives

By  | 


A 7-month-old baby, strapped in a car seat, suffered only a bruise after being ejected more than 20 feet during a car accident.

According to WHIO, witnesses say a car ran a red light at an Ohio intersection and hit a van occupied by Lashanda Goldsmith, her 7-month-old child Madison, and a 15-year-old girl.

The impact from the accident launched Madison, who was still in her carseat, through the window and she was found face-down 25-feet from the accident scene.

“They said her eyes were closed, literally closed and she was face down in the car seat,” says Alicia Lewis the aunt of Lashanda Goldsmith. “When they flipped her over they thought she was dead. Then they said her eyes opened and she started smiling.”

The family is thankful and knows that Madison’s miracle is something that could only be made possible by a higher power.

“God does not make mistakes-I tell people that all the time,” says family member Rhonda Moody. “When things happen, it’s all in His will.”
