Why are you staring?!!!!???!!!!!!!

I'm pissed. Really pissed. And disgusted with people. Not all people, just the ones I dealt with tonight. "You are FUCKING BASTARDS!!!!!!!!!!" You'll agree, I'm sure.

There was a bad accident tonight on the way home. It was a head on about 400 feet in front of me. I stopped and pulled off into a driveway. The front of one car went up in flames. No one was getting out or moving. I ran over but everyone wasn't moving and they looked unconscious, and the doors were locked. So I tried to punch out the windows, but couldn't. All the time the fire wasn't going away, mind you. Other people stopped, and this is where I get pissed. They GAWKED!!!! Not helped. STARED!!!!!!

I started screaming "YOU FUCKING BASTARDS HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" One guy ran to me, and was calling 911 while I ran back to my car to get one of those things that can punch out windows and cut seatbelts in case you get trapped in a car. I smashed the windows of the first car, cut the seatbelts, and the guy helped me pull them out and drag them away. STILL NOT ONE OTHER PERSON MOVED, JUST STARED!!!!! I guess the fuel pump of the other car was still going, because the fire was just getting bigger and spreading.

The guy helping me told me to stay away from the other car and grabbed me. I punched him so he'd let go of me and ran to the other car. I pounded out the driver's window, and the steering wheel had broken and was impaling him. I smashed out the rear driver's side window and crawled in and cut his belts. As the other guy held him steady, I lowered the seatback. Then we worked him off the steering wheel, and pulled him out through the back window I went in through. STILL NO HELP!

This poor guy had a sucking chest wound, so I told the other guy to go get the bag in my car from the grocery store and duct tape in my driver's door pocket. We put it over his hole so he could breathe, and then I could hear his lung was collapsing from the gurgling sounds. So I used my boxcutter to cut between his loer ribs and stuck an empty pen body in the hole so it would drain. Learned that in the army.

The paramedics said I at least gave the people a chance. The police put me in the back of a squad car to calm down and to keep me warm and prevent shock. Now that I've vented, I feel a little better.

Two years ago my brother was in an accident by Hudson, NY. His car burst into flames and he couldn't get out becasue he was pinned and had a broken shoulder, ribs, ankle and femur. There was snow on the ground, but nobody did anything but stare while he was yelling for help. Thankfully a truck driver stopped and had a fire extinguisher and used all of it to knock down the fire as much as he could until the fire department arrived. We don't know who he is, but he saved my brother's life. I vowed to not let that happen to anyone else if I could. How could I? I didn't think, I just did it. Maybe I'm a fool.

Nothing short of amazing! It's a shame there aren't more people like you. You saved someone's life and by ALL accounts are a true hero.

Lisa said...

Wow! Those people are extremely fortunate that you were there. I agree with LIT---definitely a hero.

Lora said...

OMG. No definitely not a fool, more like a hero. It's a good thing you were there.

Well, the guy who helped me deserves just as much credit. I couldn't have done it as quickly without him, and the speed is what we needed. Thank you for your comments.

That was really great of you. And impressive that you knew what to do about his lung.
