Well I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who was genuinely concerned for my DH. I tried going through replies but there were so many I just couldn't. I'm sorry that I'm not a good updater as I can see that got a LOT of people upset. Anyway again thank you to everyone!! Going to crawl in bed with hubby and hold him close.

*Ok so I've just had the scariest experience of my ENTIRE life! DH is ok but there was a point where I thought I'd lost him.

DH was working with the other guy and they were working on tying barge lines up. The other guy slipped and fell as two barges came together. My hubby had to help pull the guy in and he attempted to start CPR but the guy was already gone. As soon as the guy was declared dead they pulled DH into the office for a statement. This is where things got screwy. Apparently both their names were Joe and the guy was messed up so bad that they got mixed up and thought it was DH. For an hour the guys dh works with thought it was him.

When I got to the Union Hall they were really odd about it all. Said the guys were all coming back there and wanted to know if I was alone. Finally after bawling for another hour my dh finally walks in. OMG so glad to see him safe!!

I'm emotionally drained and haven't read replies or anything but I will try to later. Thanks for your prayers and support.

The news just reported a man being killed at my husbands work. I've been calling and calling and can't get a hold of him. I'm really freaking out!

Killed doing his job?  Or a workplace violence episode?

I think they have to notify the family before they air names and such. Calm down, he will call when he can. hugs!

Stop. Take a deep breath. I'm sure with all thats going on at his job, he doesn't have time to pick up your call or may not even see it..

Take a deep breath... He may be being questioned, so unable to answer his phone... Was it an accident?

The man that was killed worked in the marine part where my husband works. There are only like 10-15 that work in that area. They're saying he was crushed between two barges.
