Tracey and Dann Stadler had a very close call with death. The couple was out celebrating their 4th anniversary when they were in a horrible car accident. They had been hit head on by a drunk driver. The driver had been going the wrong way down their lane on the highway when their cars collided and the couple was trapped inside a fiery nightmare.
“There was so much wreckage pushed in on us that we just couldn’t move. Tracey was literally trapped by the engine and everything else had collapsed in on her,” Dan recalls.
“I looked at my husband and he reached over to try to unbuckle my seatbelt,” Tracey said. “And then whoosh, he started on fire. I tried getting to him but I couldn’t move. I was trapped.”
Other motorists were quick to arrive at the deadly scene and they attempted to rescue the couple.
The rescue efforts continued but time was quickly running out. The couple was becoming more and more desperate and they had a very limited amount of time left to get out of the car alive.
Then something even more amazing happened, according to Tracey:
“When I say ‘He’ it was a person who I knew wasn’t of this world. It was a Heaven sent person in an angelic form. And at that point he just lifted me up and I went with him. He pulled me out and we started getting further away from the accident site. At that point I know I left my body. I know I did. He told me I could look back if I wanted to, but I didn’t want to. And the further we got away from the accident site the more peace I felt – such peace. And the love? The love can’t be explained; we’re too finite in our words. It can’t be explained in human terms. The love, like you are going home. There was no pain, no regret, only anticipation. The only thing that mattered was my relationship with Christ. And I felt like I was in the arms of God, of Jesus Christ himself.”
