Did you hear about the 25 year old man who fell 20-30 feet at Tuesday nights Ranger game??
It was moving day in 1990. We were moving from an apartment to a house on base, in New Mexico. My mother had the windows opened because she was cleaning, but the screens was on the windows. The window had a window seat and my brother Eric and I was looking outside. I remember seeing a friend and I told Eric "Hey there is that boy". He said "where" so I pushed my head against the screen to get a better look. The screen popped off the window and out I fell. I landed on an air conditioning unit and then the rocks. I remember landing in the frog position and I couldn't breathe. I remember trying to get up and falling back down. I remember being so scared. I remember pain.
My parents called 911 but they didn't come. My Dad picked me up and put me in the car and we went to the hospital. I remember the back brace and how hard the back board was. I remember when I had to get X-Rays and reaching for my moms hand as I was being pushed away.
I was lucky. I didn't have any broked bones. They said if I was any older I would have died from the impact.
To this day I still have dreams. I'm scared of high places and bridges. I hate hearing stories of kids who fell to their deaths. Uggg... it makes me sick!
That's my story! Please, say a prayer for the 25 year old man who fell. I know, he will have nightmares the rest of his life
