At the peak of "Miracle Matt" Manazar’si career as a Professional Wakeskater, he suffered a near death accident competing at what is the equivalent of The World Series in baseball, or the NFL Super Bowl. Against all odds, he survived total reconstructed skull and face surgeries and was thought to return back to his sport in full force. 6 months later, Matt had a second accident, when he was tragically electrocuted with 15,000 volts of electricity while trimming trees at his church. This was it. Life was over for Matt. Doctors told his pregnant wife and family to say their good-byes. At best he was going to be a vegetable. Miracle Matt truly is one of the most inspiring stories and an inspiration to have faith through a sometimes uncertain question, "What do bad things happen to good people?"
