A grieving mother believes she captured the image of a “guardian angel” in a selfie she took with her dying daughter just weeks before the teen died of a rare form of liver cancer.
Sarah Danbury of Lincolnshire, England, and her daughter, Amy Beckingham, 19, were in London for treatment at the Royal Free Hospital when they decided to take several photographs inside their hotel room to show Sarah’s husband where they were staying.
“There were only two lights on that side of the room, and they were both switched off – you just can’t explain it, it’s so weird,” Danbury told the Mercury Press. “When Amy saw the picture she said ‘it’s my guardian angel.'”
Amy died just three weeks after the photo was taken.
The bright, angel-like image even appears over Amy’s head from a completely different angle looking upward toward the headboard.
“It gives me comfort seeing that picture because it makes me think there was someone there with Amy, looking after her, knowing it was coming to her time. You just don’t know.
“I don’t go to church, but it got me thinking that there’s got to be more out there,” said Danbury.
