2-Year-Old Remembers Being Held By Jesus While Unconscious In Pool

After a near-death experience, a young child revealed to his parents that Jesus held him during the frightening moments. 

Courtney McKee, Max’s mother, said her child told her that while in a swimming pool, and after nearly drowning, he was not afraid. Christ was with him at that moment. 

“He looked at us one day, and he said, ‘When I was in that pool, I wasn’t scared.’ And we were like, ‘That’s great, buddy.’ And he said, ‘When I was in the bottom of that pool, Jesus held me.’”

It’s only natural that, after becoming a parent, fears, worries and anxieties would increase considerably. Parents want nothing but the best for their children. But the world is a sad, dangerous and terrifying place.

However, in July 2019, for Brandon and Courtney McKee, their worst possible fears became a frightening reality. Brandon and Courtney had dropped off their two boys – Brody and 2-year-old Max – at Courtney’s mother’s house for a few days. But the next day, Courtney received a call no parent ever wants to receive. 

Max was at the bottom of his grandmother’s swimming pool. The 2-year-old was not responsive after being removed. After emergency medical responders were called and while CRP was performed on the child, Brody reached out to someone else for help.

“The only thing I could do was pray,” Brody said. “So, I dropped on my knees and I said, ‘God, can you help my little brother? Can you just save him? Can you put your guardian angels around him, Lord?’”

As the video posted on YouTube mentions, Max was revived and quickly transported to a nearby hospital. The next 24 hours were going to be crucial for Max. 

“He was having a hard time breathing and every minutes matter when our brain lacks oxygen,” said Dr. Marvin Mata. “It can have some profound effects. It can cause memory issues. It can cause learning disabilities. And the most worrisome would be brain death.”

Brandon and Courtney did the only thing they could do at that point: pray. But they weren’t the only people who reached out to the Lord on behalf of Max.

“Our pastor came, tons of friends who are prayer warriors came and they just surrounded his bed and we grabbed hands and we prayed,” Courtney said. “We just brought down the power of the Lord that day.”

Courtney and Brandon did not have to wait long for their answer to all those prayers.

“The next morning, Max showed signs that he was Max again,” Courtney said. “And I knew immediately there was no neurological deficits and Max was going to be OK.”

In the days following the traumatic, near-death situation, Max told his parents that Christ was with him and held him while he was in the swimming pool. Max even described his hands and feet.

“He had bobos and scratches on his hands and feet,” Max said. 

The young man is 100 percent clear on what happened to him in the pool that day.

“I’m Max and I’m a miracle,” he said

Luke 18:27 “The he said, ‘The things which are impossible with men, are possible with God.”’
