15 Minutes Down Under, Followed by Miracle of a Lifetime
John Smith fell through the ice of Lake St. Louis over five years ago and spent 15 minutes submerged under its frozen surface, leaving him dead for over an hour. However, the power of hundreds of prayers produced a miracle as Smith was revived without explanation and fully recovered from the incident. Two firefighters involved in the rescue operation, Christopher Fay and Joseph Morrow, were firsthand witnesses to the events depicted in the movie “Breakthrough,” released in 2019.
Christopher Fay, a firefighter from the Lake St. Louis Fire Department, points to the spot on the lake where John Smith was located when rescue crews retrieved him from beneath the icy surface.
