There have been so many things like this happening around the world that I do not doubt it for a second, here are a few that I have read:
AS AN ANSWER TO A DYING MOTHER'S FERVENT, DAILY PRAYERS, GOD MIRACULOUSLY CAUSED TWO DISTANT TELEPHONES TO RING SIMULTANEOUSLY
Vincent Tan, a chemist in Chattanooga had a supernatural encounter with an Angel named Gabriel in March of 1993. (Explained
) A woman in Iowa who was diagnosed with cancer and near death read about
On Saturday, April 6, 1996, Vincent was awakened at 4:30 a.m. with a burden to pray. He slipped to his knees beside his bed for a few moments, after
which he returned to bed and to sleep. He arose later, and at 7 a.m. began his morning prayer time. At 7:30, as he was still praying, the telephone
rang. So as not to be disturbed, he decided to let the answering machine take the call.
"Hello," Vincent said. Surprisingly, the other party also said, "Hello." Again, Vincent said, "Hello." Again, the lady on the other end said,
"Hello." Vincent asked, "Do you want to speak to me?" The lady said, "No."
Vincent then asked, "Then why did you call me?" The lady said, "I didn't call you." Vincent explained that his phone rang and he had answered it. The
lady said the same thing happened to her--that her phone rang and she had answered it. Vincent told her his name, and she said her name was Doris, and
that she was in Iowa. They both concluded that somehow their lines must've become crossed, causing this freak mishap.
But in another surprise, Doris asked, "Are you the same Vincent who had an experience with an angel?" Vincent said yes. She said that every day for
the past six months her mother had prayed that she would be able to meet or speak with Vincent before she died. In her prayers about this, she had
claimed the promises of Jeremiah 32:27, which says, "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?" and Jeremiah
33:3: "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Doris explained that her mother was near
death, and how that very morning, at 3:30 a.m., Iowa time (the exact same as Vincent's prayer at 4:30 a.m., Eastern Time) she was awake and felt led
to seek the Lord and remind Him of her mother's request. She asked if Vincent would speak with her mother, to which Vincent agreed. At the end of
his description, Vincent heard the mother say weakly, "Praise the Lord. Amen." This was followed by silence. All was strangely quiet. Vincent waited,
thinking that Doris was taking him off the speaker. After a few moments, Doris broke the silence and came back on the regular telephone. "Praise the
Lord," she said. "My mother just died." Quoted from here
Another from a ATS thread:

I see these things as nothing less than Divine "missions" that God assigns to His servants. Rebecca Springer wrote a book ("Within the Gates")
explaining how Heaven's inhabitants are frequently sent to Earth on missions that are an extension of God's callings and gifting in their earth-life.
This book is about the author's out of body experience and visit to heaven. I recommend it often and buy it for friends.
"Within the Gates" (formerly titled "Intra Muros" after the Latin for the same phrase and originally published in 1895) is the remarkable account
of author Rebecca Springer's experience of being taken to Heaven in her spirit while her body lay dying and unconscious for several weeks. This is an
excellent book to give to grieving family members.
The copyright has long since expired and the PDF can be found here and
Ian Clayton has been sent on many supernatural "rescue" missions:
