Personally, a group of friends in high school crashed (driver was drunk) and one of the passangers (also drunk and badly injured) trucked through a cow pasture to call 911. This is way before cell phones (damn, that makes me feel old). The big scare is one guy was riding in the trunk, which was all crushed up and nobody could get in. Long story short, no fatalities.
Also personally I got into a bad sitz on Flathead Lake (I was dead drunk, along with everyone else in the boat) and when the waves started crashing we all responded pretty effectively.
Its not the same article, but the same story, the same account.

And let me ask you this. when you responded quickly and effectively, were you -

1) drunk
2) been in a car that flipped and rolled over at high speed
3) in an obvious and documented state of shock, as evidenced by your inability to comprehend the situation around you?

Brent should be condemned for his choice to drink and drive. No one is excusing that. But criticizing him for not responding quickly when clearly in a state of shock shows you either a) did not read the actual account b) did not comprehend what you read or c) chose not to comprehend the account d) generally lack common sense.

Given your other posts on this site, i'm going to rule out d. I would suggest you read the article again, read the comments on the site, and see if you can understand why so many of us are chosing not to condemn Brent for his slowness to respond after the accident. If you still chose to think he had the ability to respond more quickly, then please provide us with an explanation of what we all must be missing.

You do realize that, in the post right before yours, we were talking about this very article, the source material of which has already been posted twice.

So apparently Browns family have forgiven Brent and asked him to be at the memorial service. Also told him they would support him throughout this whole thing.

What the hell is wrong with these guys. It sounds like he could have saved him.

Do shirts have thread counts like sheets?
