July 3rd 1997 a bunch of our family and friends went camping. Somewhere around 7 am, as we were all sleeping in our tents, someone started screaming for help. It took us all a while to understand what was going on. Once we realized it was serious we jumped into action. We were right next to a creek and the camp supervisor was waist deep in it screaming for help that there were kids in the water. Dh jumped in immediately. He swam to the bottom and drug the kids out and the others in our camp administered CPR. It was too late. Two boys, aged 16 and 17 died. Dh still doesn't like to talk about it. And there was a whole weird "curse" thing about it in the news because they both witnessed a crime and were supposed to testify.
Anyway, it was so strange. The whole thing.
Have you ever witnessed someone die? Someone you didn't know?
