We all know that the world is rarely fair, but every once in a while, something good happens that’s so impossible to explain that it might as well be considered a miracle. That might just be the simplest explanation for what happened to eight-year-old Annabel Beam.
While climbing a hollow tree outside her house, little Annabel suddenly fell a whopping 30 feet and became trapped inside of the tree. Her sisters immediately yelled for their parents to help, but that’s where things become inexplicably more strange.
What happened next was so odd that even doctors couldn’t explain it…
Though she was just eight years old, Annabel Beam couldn’t remember a time when she didn’t suffer from chronic abdominal pain. An otherwise sweet, fun-loving kid, her unknown illnesses affected her digestive system and caused her stomach to become severely bloated.
Annabel was forced to consume a liquid diet and couldn’t eat any solid food. She regularly saw doctors, but they couldn’t manage to find a cure… until something incredible happened one day when she was playing outside with her two sisters.
In 2012, Annabel had climbed 30 feet up a hollowed-out tree just outside of her family’s home, but lost her grip and fell hard. Instead of hitting the ground, she bumped her head several times and ended up inside the trunk, unconscious.
Annabel’s sisters ran indoors to alert their parents, who immediately called emergency services. Her parents knew that they had to get her to a hospital soon, and there was no time to waste.
When first responders arrived, they initially weren’t sure what to do, since cutting down the tree risked further serious injury to Annabel. Instead, they fashioned a sort of pulley system that helped lift Annabel out of the trunk. They then rushed her to the hospital.
Despite her tumble from 30 feet high, Annabel miraculously only suffered a concussion—and she somehow didn’t have any bruises or broken bones. Perhaps strangest of all, however, was that Annabel’s stomach was no longer bloated and causing her pain.
Surprisingly, doctors couldn’t provide any medical explanation as to how this could’ve happened. Stranger still, Annabel claimed she had a vision while inside the tree, and she believed she was healed due to some sort of divine intervention.
Because of the miraculous events that transpired, there’s a movie currently being developed based on Annabel’s incredible story. Now, 13 years old, she amazingly still hasn’t experienced any stomach pain since the incident!
While Annabel’s family would still like to know what exactly happened that day, they’re just happy that their little girl is better. Here, they’re photographed beside the tree that played such a pivotal role in Annabel’s mysterious cure.
No matter how you feel about Annabel’s sudden, curious recovery, there’s no doubt that something special happened that day. Just watch what her family said after learning that their little girl no longer had to suffer from her strange disease…
However you feel about Annabel’s curious cure—was it a miracle?—this medical phenomenon surely makes for an amazing story. Hopefully, things will continue to look up for Annabel!
