Most Terrifying Things People Have Witnessed Firsthand


“I saw a head-on collision between two SUVs on a remote road, 100 km from the closet hospital. I was first on the scene. I pulled bodies from burning vehicles after breaking windows. My shirt caught on fire pulling people out. Me and two other people attempted CPR on four of the six people, until they died in our arms. Many of them were missing body parts or CPR was not possible due to severe facial injuries. One man kept reaching up to me, asking if he was going to die. He told me he couldn’t breathe, and his lungs were perforated. I told him he was loved and was with people who cared for him. The vehicles caught on fire, causing a forest fire all around us that had to be put out with a helicopter hours later. I found a baby lying facedown on the road and placed it on whom I thought was the mom while doing CPR. In the end, the baby and mother were the only ones of all eight who lived. So many people’s lives were destroyed that day. I still have PTSD from the experience.”

“During the hour that it took for EMS to get to the scene, a bear walked through the scene, probably due to the smell of blood, and we had to constantly scare it away. I watched two people burn to death because I could not reach them through the fire. I tried to save them. I was covered in blood, body fluids, and bone chips. I found a tooth in my pocket after.

The smells, sounds, and textures were all so vivid that I often get flashbacks. I’m emotional writing this. Since then, I have had many horrifying dreams, but the dreams that stand out most are dreams of meeting the people who died. In the dreams, they tell me positive words of encouragement and appreciation. They even laugh and joke about life. It’s weird. I tried everything I could do to help, I promise. I tried.”

Will There Be a Season 2 of the Drama Series ‘Ordinary Joe’?

One of the most unique television shows to premiere last fall was the NBC drama Ordinary Joe. The show centers on Syracuse graduate Joe Kimbreau (played by James Wolk), but takes an unexpected turn as it follows his life along three different paths 10 years after his graduation. We see him follow in his father’s footsteps as a police officer, chase his passion for music to become a superstar, and go into nursing after marrying his love.

It’s a story all about the choices we make and how, no matter what happens, life is always messy, exciting, tough, unpredictable, and beautiful.


Sarah Palin Tests Positive For COVID-19 Before NYT Defamation Trial

Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has tested positive for COVID-19, delaying the start of her defamation trial against the New York Times that was set to begin Monday.

The news, first reported by Reuters, was announced in court by US District Judge Jed Rakoff of the Southern District of New York.

Palin initially tested positive on a rapid at-home test on Sunday night, the judge said.

“She is, of course, unvaccinated,” Rakoff added, after announcing the results of Palin’s first test.

The judge asked Palin to get retested on Monday. She tested positive again after taking a rapid test at an urgent care center, according to New York Law Journal reporter Jane Wester.

Rakoff delayed the trial until Feb. 3, as long as the former governor is not symptomatic on that date.

Palin, who disclosed that she, along with some of her other family members, had COVID last March, has openly railed against coronavirus vaccines. At a rally for right-wing group Turning Point USA last December, Palin said that she would rather die before getting a COVID vaccine.

“It’ll be over my dead body that I’ll have to get a shot,” she said. “I will not do that. I won’t do it, and they better not touch my kids either.”

On Monday evening, Palin confirmed that she tested positive during an appearance on Fox News, saying her diagnosis had been confirmed that morning.

“It is what it is,” she said. “I feel absolutely normal. Yup.”
