I was one of the four passengers in vehicle. Soon after the initial impact I heard through my broken door window "I'm a firemen and 911 has been called. This off duty firemen took total professional care of my wife and myself until ambulance and medic arrived. He was so reassuring and watched my wife closely as she was laying on side of road. My wife had back injury. I was most consented with my mother in law who was still entrapped In the vehicle under lots of heavy metal. When medic one i think ambulance one a true veteran with 32 years experience "mike" I think was his name took control of the medical part of the scene. I was pretty much in shock and told the medic I had chest pain and had difficulty breathing. Mike felt that I was his priority. He was so calming reassuring and professional my whole drive to Lancaster general i just knew he was another angel sent my way from the big guy in heaven. He kept me updated on the situation throughout. My wife can't thsnk that angel of the off duty firemen that helped her stay calm enough. Neither can I. I only left my wife to see part of my mother in laws extrication, but now these pictures fill in all the blanks. You firemen were awesome and had her extricated from the car in no time. All four of us are injured but alive! I'm in tears now writing this to all of you. The people of Oxford , pa. Are so so so lucky and blessed to have al of you watching over them! I thank our good lord for sending All of you angels to our aid when we do desperately needed it . You were perfect and I cannot thank you all enough! Frank Dennis Tannersville , Pa.
