Twice he almost died and twice he survived in a miraculous way.
This is the story of welder Apolo de Mesa. In 1968, he fell from a height of 50 feet while working on a site. Aside from wounds on his scalp, he was unbelievably declared safe from harm.
But his misfortune didn’t end there. Four years after his accident, he fell again, 90 feet down just before he could strap his safety belt.
He was immediately rushed to the hospital, but the vehicle used to take him there would stop from time to time due to engine failure. By the time they got to the hospital, he was declared dead and the doctor ordered for his body to be sent to the morgue.
His wife, however, saw his eyes move and upon checking again, they heard a pulse.
