Please pray for a man named Gerald. Yesterday morning, as my husband crossed a street, he heard metal crashing. He looked back and saw a man flying through the air. The man hit a tall wire fence and slid down, becoming wedged between the fence and a metal railing. My husband ran over to him and he and an off-duty police officer tried to keep Gerald conscious by talking to him and asking him questions. Gerald's head was bleeding and he said that he felt like he had broken his bones. He was sure that he was going to die, but my husband tried to reassure him that this would not be the case. The medics (summoned by my husband and the officer) arrived shortly after being called. They carefully removed Gerald from between the fence and the railing, and placed him on a board. Gerald was transported to Harbor View Medical Center.
My husband dropped a card off for Gerald, yesterday, but was unable to learn how he was doing (for obvious reasons).
After initially looking like he was going to drive away from hitting a car and then a pedestrian, the driver of the car stopped in the intersection. Please pray for him, too.
