Power of Prayer: Costanza family

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - One family has no doubt they experienced a modern day miracle after a father of three almost died.

On Feb. 19, 2015, Johnny Costanza went to the Oschner Hospital in New Orleans to have a surgery to remove a suspected cancerous mass by his left kidney. At first all seemed well, but less than 48 hours later, on his wife's birthday, he stopped breathing and coded.

Doctors did not know why or what happened, but Johnny was put on life support and in a medically-induced coma. After three weeks, doctors told his wife Kim that he was not getting better and there was nothing more they could do for him.

Their three children were called to his bedside to say goodbye, but that's when the Costanza family got their miracle.
