Fatal head-on crash was so horrific that first responder had a heart attack

Recommended Posts

A sister and brother were killed in a triple fatal head-on collision so gruesome that an emergency responder nearly died when he suffered a massive heart attack at the catastrophic accident site.

Eric Neibaur, 15, and his 13-year-old sister, Lauren, were killed Sunday in a head-on crash on US 30 near McCammon, Idaho. The teens were on their way back from a dirt bike-riding and camping trip in Island Park when a pickup truck driven by Eric drifted into the eastbound lane and slammed into an SUV driven by Jay Lanningham, 70, of Nampa, the Idaho State Journal reports.

All three were pronounced dead at the scene. The emergency responder with Bannock County Search and Rescue who went into cardiac arrest while pulling bodies from the crumpled vehicles is expected to survive.

Meanwhile, a Bannock County sheriff’s deputy — who was met by relatives as they tried to extricate the trapped victims — was so deeply shaken that he was given the day off to recuperate. Neither official was identified by the newspaper.

Well he pushed on. It was too much for his body/mind at the time. Good on him for doing his job though. The fact he had to have a cardiac arrest before he stopped tells you all you need to know!
