A 14-year-old girl with a history of serious health issues lay dying of pneumonia in a hospital room. But as her mother waited for the girl to take her last breath, an image of bright light appeared on a security monitor. Within an hour, the dying girl began a recovery that doctors are at a loss to explain.

But Colleen Banton, the girl's mother, has an explanation. “This was an image of an angel,” she told NBC News. She credited the apparition with saving the life of her daughter Chelsea...

Do you believe an angel saved this girl in the hospital?

it probably wasn't an angel...
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 10:46:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
It looks like the glare from a particularly bright three-tube fluorescent light to me...
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 10:55:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Wouldn't they see glows like that all the time then?
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 11:02:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
Judging from the angle, I would assume it wasn't a ceiling light. I had in mind a portable one, which to my knowledge are pretty common in hospitals, which was either being taken through and/or was turned on briefly for whatever reason.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 11:04:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope I dont believe in angels or god or any of that stuff

A portable fluorescent light shaped like a human?
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 11:20:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, a portable fluorescent light which gives a glare of "three vertical shafts of light", as it is described.

I wouldn't say, from the description or the picture, that it is shaped like a human. Don't know what kind of odd shaped people live near you though...
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 11:25:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well I see a head and an arm reaching out to hold the door open - looking like a human apparition to me
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 11:31:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
If its shaped like a human, then as far as I see, humans look something like this:




They may not necessarily smile, thats artistic license.

i have no idea
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 12:40:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
I, personally, think this is an act of God, angel or not. The shape doesn't look anything like an angel, and was probably glare from a WINDOW, but all of you are forgetting that the doctors can't explain how she got better. It really doesn't matter if we got something supernatural on tape or not. The miracle is that the girl got better. There are arguments for every aspect of this, but I think it's through the power of God that ANYTHING happens. This act is just a little more prominent than others.

I don't think so. I couldn't explain it. I have no thoughts on that.
But I'm glad she's better.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 12:47:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
It was a miracle of God no doubt. Whether or not an angel actually appeared in the room, I don't know
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 12:53:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
That was absolutely a miracle.

That doesn't mean a great deal, just that she wasn't noticeably responding to any of the treatments they tried within whatever time frames they expect, it doesn't account much for a late response or her own immune system bucking up. No more a miracle than the many who die despite expectations and without explanation really.

And not to demean the status of individuals with disabilities, but with a girl who "had been born five weeks prematurely with developmental disabilities and had battled serious health problems all her life.", it seems rather strange that divine intervention was suddenly deemed appropriate...
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 1:08:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I doubt it. In my experience angels usually just push you down the stairs...

Ditto that. ^
God miraculously heals people every day, it sounds to me like he healed that girl too.

LOL nice rendering!

As other said, that picture looks more like some form of light glare than anything else.
As for the rest of the story, sometimes people get better against expectations, and sometimes people drop dead without any warning. It happens. I don't think any kind of supernatural entity had anything to do with this.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 3:42:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I believe in angels, but not in that form...not like "supernatural" beings.

I think the image is just light playing a trick on us.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 9:01:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I believe it. God sent an angel to save an innocent girls life. Only Jesus and God can perform miricles like that.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/08 - 10:17:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, it could have been
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 12/25/08 - 3:02:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, f#ck that goddamn bullsh*t.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 12/25/08 - 3:19:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
I do believe in God, but I think the angel story is BS. I think the girl just pulled through because her will and determination to live allowed her to do so.
