Miracles do exist! On Thursday, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson praised God and “Angels of mercy” after his 74-year-old mother, Ata Johnson, survived a terrifying car accident that left one side of the vehicle ripped open. The 50-year-old actor took to Instagram to share a photo of the car and express his gratitude for his mom’s miraculous survival.
The accident, which happened late last night, was the latest of many hardships Ata has faced in her life. She has survived lung cancer, a tough marriage, and a head-on collision with a drunk driver. Despite these challenges, Ata is a survivor, and Johnson was quick to thank the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles Fire Department for their caring and focused response to the incident.
Johnson’s post was met with an outpouring of love and support from friends, family, and celebrities alike. Tyrese Gibson, Pierce Brosnan, and Lindsey Vonn all sent well wishes to Ata, and Johnson ended his post with a touching reminder to hug your parents tight.
The photo Johnson shared of the car shows the front of a red SUV Cadillac with one side completely ripped open, exposing the internal parts of the car. Thankfully, it appears that the airbags were deployed in the crash, likely saving Ata’s life.
The incident serves as a reminder to be grateful for the ones we love and the miracles that can happen when we put our faith in God. We are so thankful that Ata Johnson is safe and sound and send our best wishes to her and the Johnson family.
