Several years ago I was completing my Federal Aviation Administration flight examination to obtain a private pilot's license. The tower at the airport had given me a "straight-in" approach to the runway, but within several hundred feet of touchdown the plane I was flying became gripped in a "microburst," otherwise known as severe wind shear. The FAA examiner took over the controls, but a crash landing was unavoidable.

I know nothing of the events that followed except that I was taken to a hospital. When I became conscious there, I heard my teen-age daughter emphatically repeating "the scientific statement of being" (found on page 468 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy). Later I learned that the FAA examiner had also survived and that a Christian Science practitioner had been called and was praying for me. How grateful I felt!

The hospital staff had rejoined an index finger to my hand and set my broken bones including a broken back. I was put in a body cast which I was told would be necessary for six months, but at my request, the cast was removed after twelve hours.
