Junior Rodriguez, 31, a cab driver receiving care for anemia, said he noticed the quarter-sized face of Jesus when he looked up from his bed one day in St. John's Queens Hospital, the New York Post reported Sunday.
"I was freaking out. There was Jesus looking down on me. This room is blessed," Rodriguez said of his April 10 discovery.
Hospital employees reportedly quickly deemed Room 232 the "Jesus room."
Hundreds of patients and workers piled into the room to catch a glimpse of the brown mark.
"Everyone was screaming and running around. Everyone was coming in to see it," said Pedro Agreda, 47, who was sharing the room with Rodriguez.
