MINNEAPOLIS - A South Saint Paul family believes the world's paranormal community helped heal their little girl through the power of prayer.
While most 8-year-olds are out enjoying their summer vacations, Gabby Mathis is stuck in the house.
Last Sunday, Mathis was riding her bike down the alley to her grandfather's house when she was hit by a car.
By the time Mathis got to the hospital, she was bleeding in her brain and doctor's didn't know if she would ever wake up.
That's when Dave Schrader, who hosts a local radio show about the paranormal, heard about the accident and asked his listeners to pray for Mathis both on the air and on his Myspace page.
By Tuesday, Mathis was awake and acting like nothing was wrong, much to her doctors’ surprise. As a paranormal investigator, Mathis’ mom has seen her share of strange sights, but she says this one tops them all.
Mathis will have to undergo therapy for some short term memory loss, but other than that, doctors say she should make a full recovery.
