May 19, 2016 - Reported here. Harmon County, OK. A 14 year old girl who barely survived a car accident said she saw Jesus. Kyla Roberts spent a month in a coma at Oklahoma University Medical Center after she and four other young people were ejected in an accident March 6. She landed on her head, and the connection between her brain and skull was shattered.
"I just remember I saw Jesus, and I was sitting on his lap, and he is very big,” Kyla said. "He told me that he loves me and he's ready for me to come home, but not quite yet, and then I woke up here.” Her mother, Stephanie Roberts, said Kyla had temporal lobe fractures because her brain bounced so violently in her head. Even with surgery, doctors had low expectations for her survival. She survived two emergency brain surgeries, and she has been recovering at The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital.
She said it was too bright to see heaven, but she vividly described Jesus.“Green eyes and scraggly hair,” Kyla said. “Smells like fresh clothes out of a dryer.”
May 18, 2016 Reported here. Hollis Teen Makes Miraculous Recovery From Accident. Kyla was the most-critically injured. She suffered severe brain injuries, and was in a coma at OU Medical Center for a month. She underwent two brain surgeries, and woke up in The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital in Bethany in mid-April.
Kyla said all she really remembers is sitting on Jesus’ lap. She said he’s really nice; he has green eyes, and what she calls “scraggly hair”. “He told me that he loves me, and he’s ready for me to come home, but not quite yet, and then I woke up here,” said Kyla.
She also told News 9 (at 1:29 minute mark) Jesus has a message for everyone. “That he’s real. God is real, and Heaven is real.”
Kyla’s mother Stephanie Roberts said the power of prayer is the only thing that saved her daughter. “Her brain bounced so hard in her head, she had temporal lobe fractures. That night they told us we have to take her into surgery now, or she’s gonna die. She’s probably going to die anyway,” Roberts said. The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital Neurodevelopmental Pediatrician Dr. Steven Couch said Kyla’s recovery so far has been nothing short of “a miracle”.
