Every now and again, a tragic incident occurs that reminds us of the dangers of drunk driving. This isn’t the first time, by a long shot, that we’ve talked about this, but it needs to be said: if you’ve been drinking, you shouldn’t drive, as it endangers your life and the lives of those around you. A paramedic in San Diego wrote a post after witnessing and arriving at the scene of a horrifying incident that was a result of this thoughtless and careless behavior.
This paramedic arrived at the accident and was greeted by the site of a woman, seated on the side of the road, holding the body of her son which had been decapitated. Covered in blood, this woman barely cared about the gruesomeness of the scene – she was repeatedly attempting to replace his head onto his body.
Meanwhile, a man dashed towards the paramedic, holding the body of his seven-year-old daughter, which he immediately passed to the paramedic. The medical attendees attempted to revive the girl, but failed, and she passed away.
This family was the victim of a drunk driver, who crashed straight into them at an intersection at 60 mph after running a red light. The girl had been thrown out of the car while the boy’s neck had been sliced by the drunk driver’s bumper. The drunk driver and the parents survived, but the children did not make it.
The graphic description given by the paramedic is nothing short of horrifying, but it speaks of the terrible things that can happen when you drive drunk.
It isn’t just your life you’re playing with. It’s the lives of those around you.
