This was an an awesome story, and I have sent it to one of my Nursing Students, I remember her proudly and fondly ! I know she made it through school, and while as a student on her day off jumped to the aid of a neighbor and responded perfectly, and she did the almost impossible.... and saved a mans life in a dire situation such as this.... ! I have encouraged her to ad her story to this,.... I hope she does with great pride, that we will all share with her !
I remember, a situation on a quiet not to busy Sunday morning, an MVA, we came upon in a large intersection in Orlando ! On our way home from Church, my family loaded in our van.... it had JUST happened, cars steaming and smoking, horns blaring, glass and metal scattered in the middle of the road... everyone else... a standstill. I yelled to my husband, "Pull over" I had no idea what I would find, nor the condition of the folks in the vehicles... and what on earth was I going to do ??? (hadn't even entered my mind yet)... but I highballed it over to the vehicles... within minutes... seconds really, people all scrambling to the aid as well, and I realized I had others with me everyone was assisting, it was such an adrenalin rush, and things happened in split seconds, before I knew it we had everyone out, and everyone was ok.... minutes later police ambulance etc.... so much of it seems lost in a fog.... I barely remember ..... BUT I remember walking back to our van... my family just amazed, stunned... "WOW MOM !" .... but I didn't think twice.... ! I just "DID".... I am an LPN, worked in ORMC, and DISNEY NURSE.... but thankfully at that moment, that time, could do something... if there was something I needed to do, I was there to do it.
It may not be the case another time, and thankfully everyone was ok.... but I am glad I did.
