In February, an 18-year-old BYU student named Lexi Hansen was riding her skateboard through an intersection in Provo, Utah when she got hit by a car, and suffered serious head injuries. And doctors gave her a 5% chance of surviving.
She was in a coma for several days, but came out of it while her family was in her hospital room singing hymns. And since then, she's made an AMAZING recovery. But the MOST amazing part is how forgiving she and her family have been.
The guy who hit her is a fellow BYU student named Karson Pasker. And police say he wasn't driving drunk or texting when it happened, it was just an accident. But afterward, Karson sent Lexi's parents a letter anyway, explaining how sorry he was.
Then Lexi's mother called him to say she WASN'T angry, because she knows accidents happen. And now that Lexi is back home, she and Karson have actually become FRIENDS.
Since the accident, he's visited at least once a week, and always brings presents. And even Lexi's mom says he's like a SON to her now. Meanwhile, Karson says the family's incredible level of forgiveness has had a "life-changing impact" on him. (KSL)
