After emerging from coma, man writes bible verse on piece of paper

The scene above shows the moment Danilo Lopes Herbst suffers a serious accident while working. The image recorded by a security camera in Santa Maria Jetibá, south of Espírito Santo, shows in detail when a truck pulled telephone wires from a pole where it was doing maintenance work and ended up falling. The accident happened on November 10.

The 29-year-old was rushed to hospital in very serious condition and had to be intubated as he suffered from a head trauma and multiple fractures to his body. Herbst’s family were in despair when they heard the news. Luciana Herbst, his wife, thought she was going to lose her husband.

“When I found out what had happened to Danilo, I went into a state of shock. I thought I was going to lose the love of my life. I didn’t know how to say that to our three children, ”explains the seamstress.

Miracle in the hospital

Due to his state of health, Herbst had to go into a state of artificial coma, but it was after three days that something impressive happened. On November 13, while receiving a visit from his family and a few friends from the church he attends, he woke up from his coma. His sister, Daniela Herbst, said he pointed at the Bible and made signs with his hands.

“My brother took a pen and paper and wrote Proverbs 16: 9. We were in awe and very grateful for this miracle that had just happened. My [other] brother, who is pastor of the Adventist Church, was there in the hospital doing a service for him when Danilo woke up and wrote the verse, ”says Daniela. The Bible verse described says, “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. (NKJV)

Danilo is a member of the Adventist Church and, according to his sister, he is active in the activities of the congregation and has this verse of Proverbs as a favorite in his daily life. The young man, who dreams of being a pastor, took the theology entrance exam this year, but remains on the waiting list.

Danilo is recovering well and released this Thursday, November 18, according to the family. “He’s already playing with the doctors and interacting well with us. Danilo is back “, celebrates his wife.
