A trapped woman filmed a selfie video from her mangled car asking for help after she miraculously survived a horror pile-up.
Thalita Pereira Diogo was in one of the two cars that were crushed between two lorries.
After surviving the smash, she managed to record a clip to send to her family.
It shows how she prayed to God, calmed her anxious husband Eclezivaldo Soares da Silva and, crucially, asked for help.
Thalita, 25, recalled: “It was a stop on a downhill slope and in an unusual place to stop.
“I looked back and saw a red car, so I felt relieved because it wasn’t a lorry.
“My phone was on my lap when I heard the noise and felt the impact. It felt like a nightmare.”
Thalita’s husband also survived the crash, which happened when a lorry rear-ended the red car, which, in turn, rear-ended the couple’s car.
This caused the couple’s car to crash into the back of another lorry, which then hit a pickup truck on Saturday (3 Feb) morning.
Thalita told local media: “My husband was unrecognisable and passed out, but I stayed awake the whole time.
“While I was recording the video, I felt his hand on me, and he woke up.
“The rescue teams had already arrived at the scene, and he was shouting all the time, but I kept reassuring him that everything would be fine.”
Thalita sustained minor injuries to her arm in the accident.
Eclezivaldo was taken from the scene on the motorway between Sinop and Itaúba, Brazil, to a hospital in Sinop.
He broke two ribs, fractured a vertebra, and injured his urethra in the accident.
Eclezivaldo, 30, was discharged on Monday (5 Feb).
He was ordered to rest for three months and is still using a catheter for his urethra injury.
Tragically, three family members in the red car were killed.
They’ve been identified as six-year-old Miguel and his grandparents Rosimeire Castilho de Oliveira and Mauro Izidoro de Oliveira, aged 59 and 67.
Little Miguel had been living with his grandparents ever since his mum moved to another part of the country for work.
Family friend Mariele Bonifácio de Faria told local media: “The child was their whole world. They were a beloved family to everyone.
“Maurinho was a respected, honest, hard-working man, an extraordinary father and grandfather.
“Rose was a warrior, a hard worker, and Miguel was such a sweet child, an angel.”
