God Breathes Life Into Drowned Boy After Parents Prayed For Him To Come Back To Life

Matty Cunningham was tragically found in a pond last week after having wandered away from his family. Family members immediately began performing CPR on the 22-month-old boy, but he was gone. “He was dead,” the boy’s father, Matthew, told local station KBOI in Boise, Idaho. “He was blue and dead.”

Without thinking, family members got on their knees and began to pray. “When I’m doing compressions, my children were on their knees praying and begging God for a miracle,” Matty's mother Elsa told KBOI. “We just prayed and prayed and prayed,” Matthew told the local station.

Matty was rushed to hospital where he was revived and received an MRI scan. Miraculously, there as no brain damage. “Through the grace of God, they said his MRI was normal,” Matthew told KBOI. “There wasn’t a better word at that point a parent could want to hear.”

With God's help, by Sunday, the toddler was acting like himself again.

“He was acting like Matty. He was perfect,” his father told KBOI. “He was trying to run around in the ICU and they kicked us out.” 

“We just fell to our knees and thanked god,” Matthew told KBOI. “Praising god. You almost wonder if you’re going to wake up, it’s just a dream that’s too good to be true. You’re just going wake up from it. My son is dead and now he’s alive. It defies any logic. This is just a miracle.”
