Jesus in the Window?
A crowd inside the Florida Hospital Medical Complex in Orlando snapped photos of the image apparently showing the profile of Jesus Christ crying.
"There was just a whole bunch of people putting their cell phones to the window, so I went over there and I saw a glow," witness Joel Cruzada said. "When you are standing there and there is a flurry of people talking about it, you are like, 'Wow, I'm actually here.'"
Cruzada, who was one of several viewers to send an e-mail about the image to Local6.com, said his ex-wife was recently diagnosed with stage-3 cancer. "This was just a sign for me to not worry about what is going on in my life and that everything else is under control," Cruzada said. "It was an enlightening experience."
Another Local 6 viewer, Lorna, said she saw the image and noticed that a chaplain was snapping photos and videotaping it. "I brought some people from my (hospital) unit and they saw it," Lorna said. A viewer said the image caused "a commotion" in the hallway near the prayer garden.
The hospital is calling it an unexplained image. An official said as long as the image makes people feel good, that is all that matters, Local 6's Charnel Wright said. Witnesses said after a few hours, the image vanished.
