Angels Among Us: Reunion

Written by: Cindy Carter and Tim Freeny
Case Filed:
3/21/02 - Jackson, Mississippi
Executive Producer:
Rick Garner




"I'm going to hug your neck," said Scott Watkins, when he met Sarah Haller. This reunion comes almost two months after Sarah was hit by a car on I-55 South.

She was involved in a fender-bender, and had stepped out of her car when another car struck her from behind. Scott Watkins saw the whole thing.


"I saw a black Toyota lost control and hit her and thrown her 30 feet in the air. You looked like a rag doll. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that you would not be here without the Lord's intervention," said Watkins to Sarah.

Scott called 911 and began to pray.

He says he also called his wife, asked her to pray and call anyone she could think of and get them to pray as well. Scott then pulled over and prayed over Sarah.

"I was really comforted by it. It really re-emphasized why I was still alive," says Haller. Sarah went on to say, during that time, all voices around her melted away, except one. When Sarah was laying on the ground, the only sound she could hear was the voice of Scott praying over her. The fact that Sarah could only hear his voice isn't the only thing that amazes Scott.

Scott wondered what happened to Sarah. On February 27th, just before going to bed, Scott and his wife tuned in to our newscast to watch NEWSCHANNEL 12's Unexplained report, "Angels Among Us."

"We just fell off our bed and the spirit of God hovered in our room and we got on our knees and began to pray," said Watkins. Scott contacted us and we arranged for this reunion. Scott says he was reluctant at first to come forward because he didn't want to discourage anyone's belief in angels. However, he says prayer is also a miracle and through prayer God moved him into action, and prayer prevented Sarah from being seriously injured.

"From prayer, I know the Lord reached down and touched her," said Watkins.
"I wanted to believe I had been touched by an angel, but I was even more excited about meeting him," said Haller. Sarah and Scott say they still believe in angels.

The Bible defines angels as being either divine agents or human. Sarah says at that crucial moment, Scott truly was her angel.

"(The Bible) says God will send His angels and it also says He will equip us to do his work," adds Haller.

So, this mystery shifts a bit from "who" prayed over Sarah, to the power of prayer itself. Sarah prayed for help, she received it. Scott prayed Sarah's injuries wouldn't be serious. They weren't. What do you believe?

Watch Unexplained: Haunts III

On the evening of Halloween 2003, the unintended trilogy of "Unexplained: Haunts" ended with the half-hour television special: "Unexplained: Haunts III." It was Jeff Rent's second time hosting and it was our biggest production. Our first "Haunts" highlighted paranormal activity in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. "Haunts II" focused on several stories in Selma, Alabama. With "Haunts III," we traveled to the middle of nowhere - Cheneyville, Louisiana - to a 640-acre plantation and spent the night. Creepy doesn't begin to describe it.


Watch Unexplained: Haunts II

On the evening of Halloween 2002, my privilege and honor of working with some very talented people was showcased in the half-hour television special: "Unexplained: Haunts II." Unlike our first program which featured investigations from various locations, we opted to investigate hauntings this time across a single city: Selma, Alabama.  Rich in history on the civil rights scale and a great resource for film making, we knew nothing about the hauntings Selma. It first came on my radar when I learned that the county chamber of commerce promoted a ghost tour. They were more than helpful to line up former and current owners of the properties and other information to help our investigation. We continued with apply our proven formula: capture and honor the history of a location and weaving that together with a documented paranormal investigation.


Watch Unexplained: Haunts

Halloween 2001 was the stage for what would become a trilogy of half-hour television specials. It was called "Unexplained: Haunts" and represented a year's worth of paranormal investigations. This programming was unique for its time and even more unique for a broadcast news television crew to create. This was before "Ghost Hunters" and other similar shows. We were influenced by MTV's "Fear" and "The X-Files," but we were also driven a formula: capture and honor the history of a location and weaving that together with a documented paranormal investigation.
