Miracle Matt

A mini-doc of “Miracle Matt” Manazari, a local Clermont, FL boy. Do you ever wonder, “What do bad things happen to good people?” Perhaps Miracle Matt’s story will help us all see deeper into feeling with pain and suffering. Loved by all his peers, respected as one of the top athletes in his sport, and a man who undoubtedly has a story worth hearing. At the peak of Matt’s 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. Six 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 goodbyes. 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?”
