Last Sunday night, a powerful wave capsized Zack Romanak’s boat off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Romanak, his 10-year-old son Noah, and Brad Warren, a tourist from California they had met earlier that day, clung to the boat for nearly four hours in dark waters. The impact of the wave had snapped Warren’s femur in three places and broke his prosthetic hip, according to local news site The Garden Island.
Warren was beginning to question if he’d make it, when Noah heard something in the distance. He told the men to listen.
It was music coming from a party in the harbor; the song “Don’t Stop Believin'” by the ’80s band Journey blared from the speakers. Warren said as he listened, he saw a star shoot through the sky.
“I saw that shooting star,” Warren told KITV4 News, “and I heard Journey’s song … I felt hat was the Lord saying, ‘You’re gonna be fine.'”
