David Frost is now a firm believer in Fate. The Virginia man is sure that Karma took a hand when it placed him at the right place and time to save a life - that of his aunt Pippi Wingfield.

Frost was walking along Dabbs House Road when his aunt drove by - and that was when a horrendous accident nearly claimed her life.

PIPPI WINGFIELD'S HORRENDOUS CRASH

Pippi Wingfield would later remember a car going by on the narrow road, forcing her to veer off, hitting a tree.

Her SUV flipped over and she was trapped inside, strapped into her seat and upside down, and that was when the miracle happened.

DAVID FROST TO THE RESCUE

David ran towards the car and wrenched open the door. He could see that Pippi was trapped and he leaped into action.

“When I unhooked the seatbelt and she fell on her head, I grabbed her and I said, 'It’s me auntie. I got you baby. I pulled her out of the car and then she wanted to stand up. I said, 'It’s best not to stand up. Lay here on the ground,'” he said.

DAVID FROST: "THERE'S NO TIME TO THINK"

David, 22, admits that he didn't think before he ran toward the car. His first instinct was to help, and by a strange coincidence, the woman he saved was his aunt.

“When you see an accident that bad, there is no time to think. You just jump into action. You can’t let nobody die like this. I would’ve did it for anybody,” he said.

PIPPI WINGFIELD UNDERGOES SURGERY

Luckily, passersby called 911, and the ambulance rushed Pippi to the hospital where she underwent surgery for a fractured spine.

The recovery will be long, and arduous, but she is alive, thanks to her brave nephew.

The community and the family's main concern now is that that particular road has been the site of numerous accidents more due to its narrow curves,
