‘Miracle Child’ – Miss Universe Jamaica 2015 Sharlene Radlein

3 Sep

Jamaica-Gleaner.com – Five years ago, when Miss Universe Jamaica 2015 Sharlene Radlein left home for the movies, she had no idea that what she would be seeing would have been scenes of her life flashing before her eyes. She was 17 years old and living in the United States.

Having arrived early for the movie, Radlein and her friends decided to go grab a few beauty supplies nearby. Eight lanes between the theatre and the cosmetic store, it was a trek they often made without worry. This time, however, they were met by the unexpected.

“I only remember seeing the lights turning red and getting up and saying, ‘I’m OK’. But my friends insisted I lay flat on the ground because blood was gushing from my head. I passed out again, but this time, I woke up in an ambulance, and the paramedic on board explained that I was hit by a car while crossing the street,” shared a pensive Radlein.

Fifteen stitches to the face, eight hours in the hospital, Radlein recalled being dubbed the Miracle Child by members of staff at the hospital.
