Since many of you posting here are young men that probably have your
own cars or soon will (and love to work on them) I want to tell you this.
One month after my son graduated from high school, he was working under his car,
changing the oil...He had it driven up ramps on slightly unlevel ground
He did NOT HAVE ANY BLOCKS BEHIND THE WHEELS.
My oldest daughter found him under his car not breathing.
She called me...We had to back the car off of him and we tried to re-vive him.
I blew air into him and she tried the heart massage until the ambulance came.
But he had already died....(They worked on him about 45 mins at the hospital but I
am sure he would have been brain damaged had he lived)
He was a handsome young man...He was real smart in school like you GEEK guys
here) and a star football player.
Everyone liked his cheery disposition....He had 'pretty' auburn hair.
His funeral was on his 18th BIRTHDAY.
So if any of you reading this, ever work under your car,
PLEASE PLEASE securely put blocks behind the wheels so it can't roll back.
Janie (Scott's mom)
