Sometimes you get a craving for something you haven’t had in so long not only does it make you wonder “why now?!,” but if you don’t satisfy that yearning you feel like you’ll go crazy.

Recently Christiana Corrado had an odd urge for a cherry Slurpee. She decided she didn’t just want that frozen carbonated drink, she needed it, so she went to a nearby 7-Eleven. On her way there, it was like she was destined to drive to that particular store.

Christiana Corrado, of Westchester, New York, had an unusual desire she wanted to satisfy.

Corrado thought her sudden craving for a Slurpee was “pretty strange,” especially since the last time she had one was when she was pregnant … three years ago.

But she decided to drive to a 7-Eleven in Yorktown Heights, New York, and pick one up.

As Corrado drove to 7-Eleven, she spotted a driver in trouble.

“The car goes right by my passenger window and I’m following it and I said ‘Oh no, that’s not good,'” she told CBS2.

Corrado didn’t know it at the time, but the driver of the car had suffered a heart attack and as a result crashed his car into a utility pole, which sparked a fire, and then rolled down a hill into a nearby CVS.

She turned her car around and rushed to the scene of the accident.

When she pulled up to the scene, she noted that the driver was “really, really blue” and she couldn’t feel a pulse.

Corrado, who is a paramedic and EMS instructor, began CPR.

Shortly after she started chest compressions, “he went from blue to pale to pink, his eyes started to move, then his eyes opened and he actually started to talk and asked what is going on,” she said.

The paramedic was able to revive the driver with CPR.

Ironically enough, Corrado admitted that just prior to watching the car drive past her, she had considered her day a “waste.”

But after performing CPR on the patient she came to a realization.

“You know what, your day wasn’t a waste,” she said. “Look at that. Never know what God has in plan for you.”

And she was still able to get her cherry Slurpee.
