A South Carolina family says a guardian angel saved the life of their loved one after he was involved in a gruesome car accident. They believe that the guardian angel can be seen in a photograph taken at the scene of the crash.
The accident occurred on Dec. 3. Pastor Michael Clary was driving southbound on Highway 252 and witnessed the moment a Ford Explorer began rolling over, Fox Carolina reported.
Clary took to Facebook that same day to give a detailed account of the accident. He wrote:
“This suv passed me on hwy. 252 on my way back home from Cvs in HP when it came around me it went to far left running off shoulder over corrected going sideways in front of me . Started rolling over I counted four times before hitting ditch then going airborne hit about twelve feet against large pine. Wrapped around tree in air and I saw something come out passenger side window.
"When I got to where it was I was shocked to see a young man on ground curled in a ball the whole time this was happening I was in prayer mode asking God to protect this person . After all emergency responders got there and he was airlifted I was still praying. Just a few mins. after I got home we got a report he has a broken leg and a cut on his ear, what a mighty prayer answering God we have thank you Lord for having me in the right place at the right time.”
Clary also took some pictures at the scene of the crash. In one photo, the victim’s family believes an angel can be seen.
“You can see on the picture, on the right-hand side that the angel looks like he's actually knelt with his hands up praying over him,” Lynn Wooten, the victim’s cousin, told Fox Carolina. “If you was to see the car you would think nobody came out of it.”

Wooten told the news station her cousin was airlifted to Greenville Memorial Hospital. He was treated for a punctured lung in intensive care and also had a broken collarbone and several broken ribs.
The victim was released from the hospital on Dec. 9.
“Our family strongly believes in guardian angels and that one with him,” Wooten said. “My cousin was lucky he survived.”

Wooten said her family was grateful because their loved one had two guardian angels looking out for him after the accident: the one seen in the photo and Pastor Clary.
“If nobody had been behind him to see the accident occur, I don’t know how long he would have been there,” Wooten added. “When the wrecker got there he had to cut the first line of trees to attach it and pull the car out, it was so far in there.”
