The Florida driver behind the wheel of a car that rolled over nearly a dozen times is speaking out about his miraculous survival story.

Joe Myers, 43, was actually on his way to the hospital because he wasn't feeling well. He ended up having a seizure behind the wheel.

Surveillance video captured the car flipping not just once or twice, but at least eight times. Slamming into the ground with each flip, the crash left behind a massive debris field.

Incredibly, Myers survived to tell his story exclusively to Good Morning America from his hospital room.

"After seeing the video I am shocked I am even here, I am grateful," Myers said.

Miraculously, Myers has only small scrapes and cuts - not even a broken bone. He attributes his survival to the good Samaritans who rushed to save him. One even used a fire extinguisher to put out any flames.

"They pulled me out from the sunroof, the doors were welded shut and they had to cut me out of my seatbelt. It's a miracle I'm even here," Myers said. "I'm thankful for those people for saving me."

Myers and his mother thanked the rescuers as they reunited in his hospital room.

"I was so thankful when I saw him and when I looked back at the video I thought, 'God's got to have a plan for you, Joey,'" his mother, Sondra Davis, said.

Myers said he won't be driving again until his doctor figures out what's wrong with him.
