An accident victim who was given a less than 5 percent chance of survival has regained consciousness, and her recovery is being called a ‘miracle’.

Lexi Hansen, an 18-year-old Brigham Young University student, was crossing the street on her longboard when a vehicle struck her.

She was rushed to the hospital where doctors said her outlook was grim and notified her family so they could be by her side.

A few days later, they were gathered around Lexi’s bed singing hymns, when the injured girl reached out to each of them and grabbed their hands.

The following day, Lexi was able to breathe without the assistance of a tube and was alert.

She still has a long recovery ahead of her, but has already begun therapy for speech and mobility.

Her mother told a local news outlet, "Every doctor and nurse that comes in there, and therapist and whatever, they are just like, ‘You know this isn't supposed to happen. You know we are calling her the miracle girl, right?’”

Neither the Hansen’s nor the police are holding the driver responsible, and both agree that the collision was truly an accident.
