In 2006, I was driving to school with my mom, when the car in front of us , slammed its breaks and hit another high school student.A student who was on his bike.We were able to doge this accident luckily, but both the driver and student was not moving.
I called 9-1-1 and begged for help.All I could hear was screams from the boy on the ground.
The responders arrived on scene no longer than 5 minutes.Not only did the they help the victims, but the officers checked on my mom and I and asked if we were alright and needed help.I broke down in tears because this event was traumatizing and I remember the officer holding me back, and comforting me.
These men and women are great! and I cry every time I hear this song.
