Miracle from God: Denver child’s heart beats again after 14 hours

“I feared that they were going to tell us that our son was gone. I Paryed to Jesus, I wanted to show everyone around me the power of Jesus, God has the last say!”

Story at a glance


  • Cartier McDaniel, 4, was a typical child full of energy, with a big heart and a lot of love to go around.

  • He woke up with a fever and it progressed to chills, frequent urination, extreme thirst and lethargy. When his breathing became heavy, his parent rushed Cartier to the emergency room at Children’s Hospital Colorado.

  • His heart stopped beating for 14 hours — causing him to be placed on life support — and then all of a sudden, it restarted.

— A miracle from a higher power? No matter what you believe, the recovery story of Cartier McDaniel is nothing short of amazing.

At just 4 years old, his heart stopped beating for 14 hours — and then all of a sudden, it restarted. Now, his family and doctors are sharing an experience they’ve never seen before.

As Cartier’s parents remain in the hospital 24/7, work life and medical fees have been tough to balance. A fundraiser has been set up to help. source
