I was glad I didn't actually see it happen in real time. Meg was right next to them and she was a lot braver after than I would have been. When I saw the wife she was moving around some, but Bill said she was unresponsive by the time he ran over to her.
I will be writing a good commendation for the officer on the scene who was taking the evidence and testaments. She was very good at making it feel like she understood how we felt and that we shouldn't feel pressured.
As of the last I heard on May 30: both of them are doing okay. It seems that no news is good news.
Here is a link to another YouTube video that got a better shot of the helicopter come in and take her out.
Now some happy stuff!!

I wish I had video of them, but I am interested to see if she stands next to him again next year.
