As a parent, this first impression is terrifying, gut clenching and fear inducing!
I was immediately pulled in by the 'honour guard' and the story of Lenny the hospital porter.
Then transported to the fear and flash of panic that each and every parent can empathise with when such an event takes place in their community.
I could taste the panic as parents tried to ring their children and the tension in the air that thickened as the parents grouped in the hospital waiting room...never a situation any parent wants to be in.
Fear inducing, nerve racking and grabbed me from page 1!
