EWING, NJ — A carwash employee here said he was cleaning up the parking lot and getting ready to open earlier this week when he saw flashing lights and a cloud of smoke, nj.com reported.

The Oct. 16 story stated that the employee was scared the carwash was on fire, but when the smoke cleared he saw an image of the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus in a carwash tunnel window.

The employee grabbed his phone and started taking photos, but the image soon disappeared. The employee said in the story he sent the pictures to his family in Honduras and a number of pastors and local churches.

William Savage, the carwash’s owner, said the employee was seemingly stunned that morning. “He was so excited he was having a hard time talking to me,” Savage said in the story.

There are no lights in that area of the wash, and Savage has tried to take photos of the window and get a similar image. So far he has had no luck.
