i was sitting in the apparatus bay at work and this guy comes sprinting up to me and yells that a woman on a bicycle just got hit and there's blood everywhere. so we hop in the engine and take off down the street and this woman looks like a ****ing pile of wadded up human. she had road rash everywhere and there was a pool of blood around her head.
i was the first one to her and thankfully she was alert and awake and she told me her head was killing her and her back was hurting bad too. so i was fingering my way through her hair to find the source of the blood only to discover a 2 inch gash with an indentation (skull fracture). then i ran my hand down her spine to discover that her lumbar vertebrae were about 3 inches off midline (broken back). so we got a backboard and we rolled her over onto it and we were now face to face about a foot apart. she was absolutely beautiful. i mean completely stunning. she looked me right in the eyes and asked me why she didnt wear her helmet today. i didnt know what to say. i just said that i was so sorry and i promised to take care of her.
we loaded her into the ambulance and they took off for the hospital.
