GAM, I really don't think this is auto, it might be suckage but anyway...
Tonight, the GS leaders met at Cold Stone to finish up our paperwork for the end of the year. We were almost finished and we heard, SQUEEL! POP! OMG!
Two cars, a red firebird and a older grey car had ran into each other. The red car had two passengers and the grey had 5 -- mom, dad (driver), grandma, 14 yr old boy and 3-4 yr boy cousin.
I called 911. Ralaya, Michelle, Lisa and Kim ran out to help *Ralaya is CNA one semester away from RN, Lisa is an RN and Michelle is first responder qualified. The rest of us have first aid and cpr training.
We didn't see it happen, just saw the 14 yr old stumble and fall. He got out of the car on his own and collapsed. We were all half way to the 6 lane road by then (Craig). The mom is hysterical. Kim is holding her down to keep her away from the teen, Ralaya has him down and talking with him so he doesn't move. Lisa is with the grandma -- we don't think she will make it (no seatbelt) The little boy, no car seat. They took him away on a backboard. He didn't look to good either. According to the teen, no one had seatbelts on in the backseat. Out of the 7 in the accident, 6 went to the hospital on backboards.
Why risk it? especially with the little ones?
And rubberneckers!!! Why? you see fire trucks coming from one direction, a block behind you is an ambulance, so don't stop and gawk! Get moving! Get out of the way! So little o' me, I am yelling at cars/directing them, trying to get them to move so the police and ambulances can get up to the accident. They would stop and look for periods of time (seconds but when you have 20 cars behind you that NEED TO MOVE so the emergency help can get to the scene and they are telling me to Fck off. How classy.
And Audie, she was with us tonight. There were a few younger girls there too. She kept them all up by the storefront, but she saw what I saw (the boy collapsing and the pieces of the car scattering). She started to run out to help at first, but I asked her to go back while I was on hold for 911. She did a good job helping with the little ones. She was shaken by it though. She said that it keeps rewinding and playing in her head. She wanted to be able to do more. I don't think she understands what more would entail. We talked for a bit before she went to sleep. We will probably talk about it more tomorrow too.
