Benjamin Dehkurdi broke his neck falling from a trampoline on May 23, 2005. Benjamin was immediately put in traction on arrival at the hospital and was instructed to lay as still as possible - for the next few months. On May 24, 2005 Benjamin was discharged from the hospital after x-rays and CT-Scans proved the C1 vertabrae, which had been broken in what is described as a "Jefferson Fracture", was normal.
There is no logical or medical explanation for the change in Benjamin's diagnosis. This is a supernatural miracle, and is evidence that the promises of healing in the Bible are available to those that believe.

Immediately after falling from the trampoline, Benjamin had let out a shrill cry, and lay on the ground for a short time. Carefully holding his head, Benjamin managed to stand and walk towards the house. The amount of care Benjamin was taking in protecting his neck and head from movement convinced his mother, Geneva, to take him immediately to the Langley Memorial Hospital (British Columbia, Canada) where an x-ray determined that he had broken the C1 vertebrae. After arriving at the hospital, Benjamin refused to lay down, but instead found limited relief from the pain by pressing his back flat against the wall.
After the severity of the injury was determined, Benjamin was put in a brace and traction and taken by Ambulance to Vancouver's Children's Hospital (British Columbia, Canada). Benjamin's father, Matthew, had come from work to Langley Memorial Hospital in time to follow the Ambulance into Vancouver. While behind the Ambulance, Matthew used his cell phone to call his Pastor, who prayed with Matthew over the phone. As it was already late evening by the time Benjamin arrived at Children's Hospital, a CT Scan was scheduled for the next morning. His mother spent the night at the hospital with Benjamin.

Early in the morning a CT Scan was taken of Benjamin's neck at Children's Hospital. In contrast to the x-ray taken the previous day, the CT Scan showed no break or fracture. The nurse on duty was then permitted to remove the neck brace in order to determine the effect of muscle damage as a result of the injury. The nurse was nervous removing the neck brace and suggested that Benjamin be careful in moving his neck. Benjamin, not having moved his head since the previous day, slowly stretched his neck to discover that he had no muscle pain relating to the injury of the previous day. The nurses, doctors, and Benjamin all shook their heads.
Benjamin was discharged from the hospital on May 24, 2005 with a normal spine, as indicated by the medical report attached below.
Benjamin remains physically active, plays sports, but now admits to thinking twice about jumping off high objects.
Benjamin's father explains the physical change in his son's body as a direct fulfillment of the promises of the Bible to heal, to their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and to their family's respect in the office of the Pastor.
