19-year-old Blake Spataro, was talking to God the entire night while he was fighting for his life off the coast of Georgia. Now after the Miraculous survival, the teenager from Louisiana is so happy to say! “I am truly blessed to be alive today”
This July 10th, Blake Spataro was on vocation at St. Simons Island when a rip tide pulled him into the ocean. He stranded in the ocean for nearly 10 hours and screamed for help. Even in such a dire situation, the young man didn’t lose his faith in God and gave up his hope to live!
“I didn’t want to die out there,” Spataro said. “I was talking to God the entire night.”
The U.S Coast guard along with multiple agencies did search in the sky and by boat for the missing teen. His father, Kirk was also desperate to find his son and spent the whole night in beach! All this while, Spataro kept pushing through, until he came across a golf course on next day morning!
“I’ve been in the Coast Guard for 18 years and I have never seen anything like this,” said Justin Irwin, senior chief with the U.S. Coast Guard in Brunswick.
