(Minghui.org) I refilled the petrol tank of my scooter on the morning of March 19, 2014, before I went out to talk to people about Falun Dafa. The poor quality of the petrol caused my scooter engine to keep stalling. On my way home I decided to go to a petrol station across the street to replace the petrol in the tank.
As I was riding across the street, the engine stalled again and a speeding semi truck struck me. I lost consciousness.
When I woke up, I was standing, and someone was calling me. I opened my eyes and saw two people holding my arms. I later learned that they were the truck driver and his wife. I told them that I felt fine. I noticed that my scooter was on the ground about six meters (20 feet) away and the semi truck was 20 meters away.
The wife said, “You have cuts on your hands and your head…” I remembered that Teacher taught us not to cause others trouble. I told her, “I am fine. They are superficial injuries. You can leave.” A bystander asked for my phone number and called my family. My husband, daughter, and son-in-law quickly arrived.
My son-in-law got upset after he saw that my jacket was torn and my head was covered in blood. He kicked the driver! I stopped him and said, “It’s not the driver’s fault. My scooter suddenly died in the middle of the road.”
The driver called an ambulance. I told the driver and the bystanders, “I don’t need to go to the hospital. I practice Falun Dafa, I will be fine.” The paramedics arrived and the bystanders forced me into the ambulance.
The doctor told me that I had a 9 cm (3.5 in) cut on my head and the flesh was exposed. The swelling caused a big bump on my head. When the doctor tried to stitch it up, I declined, “It’s not necessary, please just rinse it off.” The doctor disagreed with me. The driver told me that he would pay for all the medical procedures. I still insisted not to get the stitches.
My son-in-law didn’t know what to do. My daughter said, “Let’s listen to mum. She is in good health and hasn’t taken any medication for years.” My daughter did not practice Falun Dafa but she has seen many amazing things happen to me, and believes that Falun Dafa has healing power.
We left the hospital with the driver. In the car I told him what Falun Dafa was and why it was wrong for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to persecute practitioners. “Please rest assured that I won’t take a dime from you. I am a Falun Dafa practitioner.” He drove to the scene of the accident.
My husband and the driver’s wife waited there the whole time. My husband later told me that the driver’s wife was worried sick and believed that her husband was in serious trouble. Though my husband did not practice Falun Dafa, he read the books and agreed with the teachings. He supported what I did to clarify the truth.
He told the driver’s wife, “My wife practices Falun Dafa. She won’t cause you any trouble. She won’t take a dime from you. Don’t worry.”
Before the couple drove away, the driver took out 2,000 yuan and said to my daughter, “This is for your mother to buy a new jacket and fix her scooter.” My daughter told him, “You heard my mother in the car. So did we. We won’t take your money.” The driver said, “I really ran into a good person. If your mother chose to stay in the hospital, it would cost me a fortune. I would have lost my job and my truck.” To reassure the driver my family refused to write down his name or phone number. Instead my husband left his phone number with the driver.
I washed my head when I returned home. I had to wash it three times to remove the blood. My shirt was soaked in blood. I changed clothes before I did the Falun Dafa exercises and I went on with my life as usual.
Practitioners came to see me the next day, after hearing about the accident. The deep gash on my head started to close up and heal. “See how nicely the wound heals. If you had gotten the stitches, you would have to go back again and get them removed,” one practitioner said. The swelling went away that night. My children who came to see me were surprised.
News about the accident spread quickly in the local community because it took place during peak traffic and there were a lot of witnesses. People talked about it because they couldn’t understand why I didn’t ask for compensation from the driver, or even take his phone number. They felt shocked and amazed upon seeing how quickly I recovered without medical treatment.
Except for Falun Dafa practitioners, no one could ever figure out why I remained standing after the truck hit me and my scooter was thrown 20 ft away. It was because Falun Dafa and how it righteously teaches people to be good, miracles do happen.
I talked about the car accident to family and friends alike. People exclaimed, “You were the Falun Dafa practitioner who didn’t ask for money after that traffic accident!? Practitioners are indeed good people!”
I am 69 years old and had little education. After I learned the teachings of Falun Dafa, I knew how to be a good person. After I began practicing Falun Dafa 23 years ago, my health and character improved dramatically.
This April my younger sister, whom I haven’t seen for over 30 years, came home. She ran towards me and gave me a big hug, “How did you become so pretty?!” A granny from next door also praised me saying that I was prettier than when I got married.
I did look ugly when I got married. One of my eyes was slanted and my face was covered with freckles. My eye no longer slants and my freckles disappeared after I took up Falun Dafa. My skin cleared up and I now have a rosy complexion with few wrinkles. When my younger sister said that I became prettier, perhaps it was because I usually have a smile on my face because I’m now calm and peaceful.
