Last night, I observed from a short distance away as a young man fell from the 4th floor of a parking garage. A few friends and I ran to give aid. Chaos was going on for a few moments, but I watched as two men of God ignored the chaos and did everything they could (which was quite a bit) to assess the situation and give assistance. One fed me his assessment of the injuries so I could give accurate information to the 911 operator I was speaking to while the other kept the prone man calm. His wallet and phone were retrieved and a young woman in the crowd found "mom" and called. What hard news to give! Please be in prayer for his mother.
Emergency crews were on hand shortly thereafter and the crowd began to clear...or at least move to observe from further away.

Please be in prayer for this young man and his family. I think he was probably 20ish. He has multiple broken bones and will be in pain for sometime. Please pray for the emotions of all involved, too.
