Mistaken Rapture Kills Arkansas Woman
by Elroy Willis
ARKANSAS CITY (EAP)
-- A Little Rock woman was killed yesterday after leaping through her
moving car's sun roof during an incident best described as a "mistaken
rapture" by dozens of eye witnesses.
Thirteen other people were injured after a twenty-car pile-up resulted
from people trying to avoid hitting the woman who was apparently
convinced that the rapture was occurring when she saw twelve people
floating up into the air, and then passed a man on the side of the
road who she claimed was Jesus.
"She started screaming "He's back!, He's back!" and climbed right out
of the sunroof and jumped off the roof of the car," said Everet
Williams, husband of 28-year-old Georgann Williams who was pronounced
dead at the scene.
"I was slowing down but she wouldn't wait till I stopped," Willams
said. She thought the rapture was happening and was convinced that
Jesus was gonna lift her up into the sky," he went on to say.
"This is the strangest thing I've seen since I've been on the force,"
said Paul Madison, first officer on the scene.
Madison questioned the man who looked like Jesus and discovered that
he was on his way to a toga costume party, when the tarp covering the
bed of his pickup truck came loose and released twelve blow-up sex
dolls filled with helium which then floated up into the air.
Ernie Jenkins, 32, of Fort Smith, who's been told by several of his
friends that he looks like Jesus, pulled over and lifted his arms into
the air in frustration, and said "Come back," just as the Williams'
car passed him, and Mrs. Williams was sure that it was Jesus lifting
people up into the sky as they passed by him, according to her
husband, who says his wife loved Jesus more than anything else.
When asked for comments about the twelve sex dolls, Jenkins replied
"This is all just too weird for me. I never expected anything like
this to happen."
