The unwa­ver­ing spir­it of 29-year-old Lisa Fitzger­ald from New Jer­sey is cap­tur­ing hearts after a hor­rif­ic train acci­dent. On a rainy May evening, while wait­ing at the Mor­ris­town sta­tion, Lisa came into con­tact with a train pulling into the plat­form, result­ing in the ampu­ta­tion of her leg.

Despite the excru­ci­at­ing injury, Lisa dis­played remark­able strength by pulling her­self onto the plat­form, even as some bystanders passed by with­out assist­ing. Her deter­mi­na­tion to sur­vive is fur­ther evi­dent in her com­po­sure and humor while wait­ing for help.

“She crawled her­self over
She was like, ‘I was just so scared that my hair was going to get caught up in there and that they were going to suck [me back in],’ so she wait­ed for the train to stop,” recount­ed Lisa’s step­moth­er, Sta­cie Weil-Fitzgerald.

The time­ly arrival of Mor­ris­town police offi­cers ensured prop­er med­ical atten­tion, poten­tial­ly sav­ing Lisa’s life. Even dur­ing this crit­i­cal time, Lisa’s pos­i­tive spir­it shone through with jokes and a clear mes­sage: “Please get me to the hos­pi­tal. I’m not going to die this way.”

While the acci­dent result­ed in the loss of her leg, Lisa’s resilience con­tin­ues to inspire. Her fam­i­ly has orga­nized a cel­e­bra­to­ry “glam­pu­ta­tion” birth­day par­ty, show­cas­ing their unwa­ver­ing sup­port. A GoFundMe cam­paign set up by her sis­ter has gar­nered over $77,000 to aid Lisa’s recov­ery and future med­ical needs.

“She has not stopped smil­ing,” Sta­cie expressed, high­light­ing Lisa’s unwa­ver­ing opti­mism. Dubbed the “Mir­a­cle of Mor­ris­town,” Lisa’s sto­ry exem­pli­fies the pow­er of human will and the abil­i­ty to over­come immense adversity.
