On the way to her parents' house last night, my wife and I saw a motorcyclist hit by a teenager in an SUV that ran a red light*. She, having experience as a trauma nurse, jumped out and did what she could for him 'til the EMTs showed up. He was dead before LifeFlight got there, though. I could tell that it really messed her up to see them pull the sheet over the guy's face and wave the chopper off without landing.
I think it affected both of us even worse knowing that I just sold my motorcycle last week. If I hadn't then, I would be now.

What's the most traumatic thing you've ever seen?


*As of the 6:00 am news this morning, he was in custody with some pretty hefty vehicular manslaughter charges pending.
