The Mothman Prophecies

John decides to visit Connie in time for Christmas. While on The Silver Bridge, it occurs to him that the Mothman was warning him of a "Great tragedy on the river Ohio." John realizes that the bridge the cars are backed up on is going to collapse. In a very disturbing and realistic depiction, the bridge does begin to collapse, eventually being destroyed completely. In the process, Connie, while in her car, slides into the river and John jumps into the water to save her. Though shaken, they both come out alive. When John asks an investigator what the estimated death toll is, he reports 36. Connie then recalls a bizarre dream she mentioned earlier in the film, where a voice whispered "Wake up, number 37." Therefore, John's intervention kept Connie from being the 37th victim.

Alexander Leek: If there was a car crash ten blocks away, that window washer up there could probably see it. Now, that doesn't mean he's God, or even smarter than we are. But from where he's sitting, he can see a little further down the road.
