  • How is this for freaky?

    True story, honest to god.

    yesterday, I was driving on my way to work at the Arena which is about 5 minutes from my job location. I passed by an intersection and saw a police car in the distance. lights flashing i slowed down, and he was directing traffic to move over as there had been an accident. as i got by the site, i saw a tow truck pulling a damaged and wrecked wheelchair off the road. oh dear, looked like a bystander in a wheelchair got hit. it was totally wrecked and sadly I had doubts the person in there had survived. thought nothing else of it and continued on to work.

    fast forward to today, i went online and saw some more information about the accident. turns out the bystander was in fact in a wheelchair, he was 45 years old and had no arms or legs. he had appeared to be drunk and crossed the road without looking. an SIU student hit the guy and knocked him out of his wheelchair. him being drunk and with no arms or legs unfortunatly had to suffer for quite awhile until the ambulance came by. he was flown to a STL hospital where he was pronounced dead later on. quite sad to see as he was a regular customer at where I worked. i remebed him but could not recall his face. my boss had remembered him too. my dad knows what he looked like and said if i saw his face id recognize him.

    yesterday..at this time, about 10 min before the accident yesterday, my mother was with my brother and sister at the amtrak station ready to board. she was near the dairy queen restaurent and my brother was sitting there eating ice cream. he looked cute there so my mom said so she snapped a picture of my brother. then she boarded the train and went off with my brother and sister.

    now fast forward back to this evening. my mom took some pictures of the lightning thing we had going on with the storm tonight. she took some awesome pictures by the way. then one of the pics got stuck(she had a digital camera) and it reversed back to where she was taking pictures of the train trip. then she got to the pic of my brother that she wanted to show me. she zoomed on it and i saw a dot behind my brothers face. so we zoomed and zoomed, then we screamed. the "dot" was the man in the wheelchair that had died just 10 minutes later! my mother does NOT requal seeing the man AT ALL anywhere near my brother. she does not remember taking a pic of him in it with my brother, yet there it is. then 15 min later when he had gottne hit she was sitting on the train and saw an ambulance go by wondering what it was for. well my mom was so frightened at why this man "appeared" in her picture. so she showed my father who confirmed it was in fact him. now we are really spooked. as my mom re called thinking back, she realized she did remember him. she saw he was going to stop and talk to her family but i guess decided against it. now she wishes she had because if he had stopped even for a minute to chat, she could have saved his life and he would not have been killed.

    i said god planned it for him to die no matter what. but it was just really freaky he showed up in one of our pictures moments before he died. it was like there is a reason why he is being shown, as like a last memory of him or so. my brother asked if you could see the angel of death following him. i kinda laughed but looked again, and it did seem like there was something there. but who knows. thought it was quite freaky and erie.

              Well, being 45 is still young...the guy without arms and legs and in a wheelchair...to me...it sounded like he wanted to die...probably had a really poor life ....that's why I feel sorry for the young Army and Marines that looses a body part and have to live with that for the rest of their lives...now that's freaky.
