A Metro woman is searching for her guardian angel who saved her life in Oklahoma City after her car crashed and fell into a 30-feet deep creak. The woman who does not know how to swim is very thankful to the stranger, who pulled her out from the water and rescued her.
Nichole McCoy said, “That’s why I’m here telling you this story because it ain’t about me. It’s about my angel,” said Nichole McCoy. “The devil had a plot, but God had the master plan.”
Nichole McCoy and her sister, Lashone Carter, were out for a drive after she had surgery on her hand. While Carter was driving along Northwest 10th and Villa, she swerved to avoid a bus. The car hit a curb and sent it flying, before crashing into the 30-foot deep waters.
“And the car began to sink and sink more. I can’t swim. I saw my life flash, and I can’t swim any. And I really couldn’t swim with this cast on,” said McCoy. “When I saw the bubbles the third time and I made eye contact with my sister, in my mind I thought it was over.”
As the sisters were struggling to stay afloat, they said a man in a mechanic suit appeared which had the name tag “Matt”, he didn’t waste time but jumped in to save them. “I was like, ‘Don’t worry about me. Go get my sister. She can’t swim. Just go help her.’ And when we made eye contact, I could see the fear in her face, and I could see where she was getting ready to give up. I couldn’t let that happen.”
McCoy recalled the rescue saying, “He didn’t know nothing about me. He jumped in that water and did what he had to do,” said McCoy. After a few seconds, Matt helped McCoy to the banks. “He just gave me a big hug and I gave him a big hug. And he started crying and I started crying. I was telling him ‘Thank you,’” said McCoy.
After the incident, the sisters say, Matt vanished. “I’m like, ‘Where did this guy go? Where did this guy go?’ That was my angel. God, sent my angel at the right time,” said McCoy. Now they and their families are on a mission to find their guardian angel. “He let me see that I could’ve died. I could have been gone,” said McCoy. “Everybody wants to meet the angel named Matt.”
To the surprise of everyone, both sisters were unharmed due which is nothing short of a miracle as Carter’s chest slammed into the steering wheel and McCoy’s face went through the windshield. McCoy had surgery on her hand when she fell into the waters in the creek but there is no sign of damage or infection to it. Praise the Lord!
