9-year-old Paje Wiklund was playing baseball when she was swallowed by a sink hole — an old cesspool — on her way to first base.
She would’ve fallen 16 to 20 more feet… but she happened to land on an old pipe. After that, her friends were able to rescue her.
How is the family responding?
… family members said they are grateful the pipe was there because they shudder to think how they would’ve rescued their child otherwise.
“She’s got an angel watching,” Karin Wiklund said.
I’m glad the girl is ok, and I’m not trying to make fun of the mother during this time of potential disaster.
But it’s an annoying habit to see. You get saved by good luck or good friends and the credit goes to the supernatural.
Why must people resort to nonsense like this? Isn’t it possible that good fortune and misfortune are just a part of life? You hope they balance out or the good fortune wins out over time… but no one’s watching over you making sure that happens.
Let’s just call it like it is.
