“Breath in. Breath out. You will be okay.” The voice hitting his eardrums seemed to be coming from a long way. He was dizzy and disoriented.But he was alive and he was breathing. At first everything seemed hazy and nothing made any sense to him.
Gradually he started to feel things and the first feeling that hit him with the force of a sledgehammer was the pain. He couldn’t feel anything else then that pain. He tried to open his eyes which felt glued shut. With a lot of effort he could see a couple of feet in front of him.
He was trapped in his car which was laying on its side. The side door was wedged in and the windshield was broken into a million pieces. A head was protruding from the window at his side of the car. He appeared to be a paramedic. He was trying to stabilize him and was encouraging him to breath.
The pain he was feeling was from the broken leg and ribs. Slowly it all came back to him. His car was hit by an overtaking semi, which had caused the car to be rolled on its side and dragged along for a long way.
“You are very lucky to be alive. The only thing that was between you and certain death was the fact that you had your seatbelt on” The medic was telling him as he helped the team to ease him out of the car.
Your line for this week is:
“Breath in, breath out, you’ll be okay.”
