Johan Viviers‚ 38‚ credits his miracle survival to God after his brush with the knife-wielding attacker.
Speaking to TMG Digital‚ Viviers said the dramatic string of events started when his mother happened upon a burglar in their home.
“I was outside on the front veranda and as she screamed he started running. I saw him running out by the back door. I ran around the house and he ran into me there‚” Viviers added.
“I don’t know when he stabbed me but we were on the floor and we were fighting. I was trying to get the knife off him… I got hold of him and I started hitting him. I felt something in my neck. I held him until the police got there and only then released the knife was stuck in me.
