Mysterious woman on the road-Fiction!
The Dead Woman Who Flagged Down a Motorist to Save her Baby-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
A man and his wife are out for a drive when they see a woman waving at them in the middle of the road ahead. As they get closer, they see she's got cuts and bruises, so they stop to help. The woman says she's been in a car accident and that her husband is dead. Her baby, however, is still alive in the car which is in a deep ditch. The driver leaves the woman with his wife, rushes to the wrecked car, and sees that the baby is still alive, but that two other people in the car have died. He returns to his car with the baby, but the injured woman is gone. The driver's wife says she followed him when he went down to rescue the baby. The man returns to the car to discover that, to his shock, the woman who flagged him down and asked him to rescue the baby is one of the two dead people in the car.
We're classifying this one as fiction for a couple of reasons. One is that this story has nothing in it that would lead someone to the facts to authenticate it. No names, locations, or dates. Another reason is that it closely resembles a category of urban legends known as "The Vanishing Hitchhiker." In many of those stories, a motorist gives a ride to a mysterious person who, it is later discovered, was dead.
IF ANYBODY HAS FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THIS STORY, LET US KNOW!
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
One afternoon, a couple was traveling on the road when all of a sudden at a far distance they saw a woman in the middle of the road asking them to stop.
The wife told her husband to keep on driving because it might be too dangerous, but the husband decided to pass by slowly so he wouldn’t stay with the doubt on his mind of what might have happened and the chances of anyone being hurt. As they got closer, they noticed a woman with cuts and bruises on her face as well as on her arms. They then decide to stop and see if they could be of any help. The cut and bruised woman was begging for help telling them that she had been in a car accident and that her husband and son, a new born baby, were still inside the car which was in a deep ditch. She told them that the husband was already dead but that her baby seemed to still be alive. The husband that was traveling decided to get down and try to rescue the baby and he asked the hurt woman to stay with his wife inside the their car. When he got down he noticed two people in the front seats of the car but he didn’t pay any importance to it and took out the baby quickly and got up to take the baby to it’s mother. When he got up, he didn’t see the mother anywhere so he asked his wife where she had gone. She told him that the woman followed him back to the crashed car. When the man decided to go look for the woman, he noticed that clearly the two people in the front seats were dead; a woman and a man with both their seat belts on. When he looked closer, he noticed that it was the exact same woman that was begging them for help in the beginning.
Do you think that it was a miracle of God? The Baby now lives with family members and he will live to tell the story. If you believe in the Almighty and that miracles like these can truly happen, send this to your friends. If you don’t send it, nothing will happen, only that the some people won’t be able to know of the greatness of the Lord.
