The woman suffered bite marks to the head, arm and leg and claw marks to her back in the weekend bear attack in Florida. But Terri Frana, 44, who was attacked in the garage of her home near Lake Mary, Fla., never believed she was going to die. In fact, she was at peace.
Call it the power of prayer.
A Seminole County woman who survived a bear attack over the weekend told WESH-Channel 2 that while in the jaws of a bear, she prayed and heard Jesus speak to her, saying "It's O.K. you will be at peace," the Orlando Sentinel is reporting.
Frana told WESH that the bear "started pulling me toward the woods. … I just thought, 'God, please, this can't be the end. It can't end like this. ' I literally heard Jesus say to me, 'It's O.K., you will be at peace with us.'
"I replied, 'Please, my kids need me. Then the bear released my head. She let go of my head, and I knew I had to get up off that ground and get away. Otherwise, I was not going to make it."
