A deadly earthquake hit Italy this past week. In the aftermath, 272 people have been confirmed dead.
20-year-old Giulio Colangeli was thankfully pulled from the rubble and survived.

The grateful dad comments:
The Times found Dr Colangeli, a lung specialist at San Salvatore hospital, itself badly damaged by the earthquake, at his son’s bedside in Rome. “I am a doctor. I am a rational man. But I can only say that all those signs, all those coincidences, that led me to my son, must have been sent from God,” he said.
I’m glad the son is ok. I’ve never been in the same position as the father and I hope I never have to be.
That said, if God is to be thanked for the son surviving, God must also be blamed for killing those other people. I don’t see any reference to anyone thanking God for working in some mysterious way by destroying cities and hundreds of people.
God shouldn’t be getting credit without any chance of getting the blame.
