>John Bradford, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road

>behind the wheel and the engine wasn't on.
>The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a
>curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life.
>Then, just before the car hit the curve, a hand appeared out of

>the hand came through the window, but never touched or harmed him.
>Shortly thereafter, John saw the lights of a pub appear down the road, so,
>gathering strength, he jumped out of the car and ran to it. Wet and out
>of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about the horrible
>experience he had just had. A silence enveloped the pub when everybody
>realized he was crying. and wasn't drunk. Suddenly, the door
>opened, and two

>were also soaked and out of breath. Looking around, and seeing

>sobbing at the bar, one said to the other... 'Look Paddy......there's
>that idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it!'
