Kidnapper Chokes 7-Year-Old, Throws Tiny Body Into Lake at 4 A.M. But Miracle Leaves Him Behind Bars

“…obvious God is watching over her!”

Criminals come in many forms. Some live their lives as burglars, drug dealers, murderers, and the list go on.

Then there are those who are kidnappers. According to one report by Worcester Police Department in Massachusetts, this was the case for a 7-year-old girl on Sunday, Aug. 27.

As stated in one of the department’s Facebook posts, the young child was attending “a family party at her grandparents’ house” up until her sudden disappearance. At around 2:30 a.m., the girl was illegally taken by a friend of the family.

Police say 35-year-old Joshua Hubert kidnapped the child from the residence. “She was put in a car, strangled, and thrown off a bridge into Lake Quinsigamond,” the police said.

Hubert’s intentions were obvious — he wanted to kill the little girl. Yet, he didn’t know that a miracle would soon leave him behind bars.

The child not only dropped 50 feet into the lake, but she survived the fall. After swimming to shore, she ran to the nearest home in Shrewsbury.

A woman answered the door at around 4 a.m., only to find the 7-year-old soaked in her pajamas. Once police got involved, they determined that the child had visible injuries, but none that were fatal.

Later that day, Hubert was charged with kidnapping. He was scheduled for a court appearance the following day but pleaded not-guilty.

As the investigation progresses, Hubert could face additional charges. Facebookers are certainly counting on “attempted murder” to be one of them.

His heinous crime almost cost a little girl her life, but fortunately, God had other plans. Her story was proof that miracles do happen.

“Wow, what an amazing and beyond brave 7y.o.,” a Facebooker wrote on the post. “I pray she makes a full recovery cause it’s obvious God is watching over her!”
