HUMBOLDT, TN (WMC) -

After an extremely tense day in Humboldt, Tennessee, some are saying what occurred could be considered a miracle.

"For those of you that do not believe in miracles, guess what, we had one today in our town," said Humboldt Police Chief Robert Ellis.

After an attempted bank robbery and shooting of a Bancorp South employee Wednesday morning, some say the situation could have been a lot worse.

"We had a miracle today," Ellis added. "We had a really horrible situation that could have turned out extremely bad and we have a person that is gonna be okay."

Former fellow church members of the victim say her name is Janice Frisbee, but some call her Pamela Frisbee.

FBI agents say 39-year-old Dominic Williams, a felon from California, approached Frisbee at her home, then kidnapped her and forced her to drive to the bank where she works.

When Frisbee couldn't get inside the vault, Williams allegedly shot her several times, then escaped through the window. He was arrested by Chief Ellis.

Frisbee was taken by helicopter to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where she is recovering Wednesday night.

Friends and family flocked to Facebook, asking for prayers and providing updates.

One woman, Sissy Davis, says Frisbee was shot twice. She says one bullet hit her shoulder and went across her chest, exiting near her heart. The other bullet was aimed straight at her heart, but hit her large jewelry instead.

Davis added that "even doctors say nothing but a real miracle."

Meanwhile, Humboldt citizens are remembering their injured neighbor and thinking of her.

"I would really like for those of you out there to pray for our victim," said Ellis. "Tonight, remember our victim and everybody join together, because this is going to be a hard road."

As of Thursday morning, Frisbee is recovering in fair condition at the hospital.
