Hey there! Can someone please let me know if this man is okay? I was driving to the NoFrills up by Renforth on wednesday after I was done work to buy some groceries… I saw the gentleman laying on the ground grunting, panting and bleeding all over the concrete road. I was crying and scared to death having a panic attack. There were about 10 people on the floor helping him and waiting for the ambulance to arrive. The fire trucks stopped right in front of me and I was still hyperventilating! I wanted to get out of there because I was going to faint! Thankfully someone was able to let me get into the right lane so I wouldnt be stuck in the left hand turning lane. I called my fiancé on the phone and I was still in a panic almost fainting! I did not buy groceries and went straight home after that. I really hope that this man is okay! I serioisly would love to go and visit him! I called my brother who is also a motorcyclist, just to tell him I love him and to be safe out there on the roads!
