'God Was There That Day': Parents Reflect on Series of Miracles That Saved Drowning Daughters

Tré Goins-Phillips : May 23, 2024  Faithwire.com

"...I remember saying out loud, 'Oh, my baby,' and grabbing her and starting CPR. But even in that moment … [I had] this peace and this focus that just washed over me." -Caitlin McKnight

Those are the words of Jacob McKnight, the father of 6-year-old Zoey and 4-year-old Callie. Both children nearly drowned in a pool during a one-day trip from Kansas to Oklahoma.

McKnight, a pharmacist, was in Edmond, Oklahoma, with his wife, Caitlin, and their children, Zoey, Callie, and 1-year-old Elenor, staying at his sister's home. He had just returned from a business meeting when his wife followed after Elenor, unintentionally leaving the two older girls alone.

In the span of three minutes, the McKnights realized Zoey and Callie were unaccounted for and began frantically searching for their daughters. Soon thereafter, Jacob realized they were underwater, at the deepest part of the pool, 10 feet below the water's surface.

It was in that time that—in retrospect—Jacob believes a series of miracles unfolded in quick succession. The water, he later learned, was murky, yet he clearly saw the girls at the bottom of the pool. And even after anxiously running around the house and yard, he still had the stamina to dive into the water to lift his 35- and 45-pound daughters from the bottom of the pool to the ground beside it, where he and his wife immediately began performing CPR on the unconscious girls.

"It was really overwhelming in the beginning," Caitlin told CBN News. "But even from the very first moment of seeing my husband in the pool, pulling out our 4-year-old, realizing what had happened, I remember saying out loud, 'Oh, my baby,' and grabbing her and starting CPR. But even in that moment ... [I had] this peace and this focus that just washed over me."

"I don't think that would be possible if God were not there, and filling me with that peace," she added. "It was really incredible."... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
