ESCAPE VELOCITY - todd mercer

But worse is when the EMT can’t hear the patient trying to respond. I’m in here. Yes, I know what happened. The speech function is broken and the facial muscles are rigid. The medic tells the driver: Looks like this one coded. Between the reach for the zipper bag and the patient’s carefree evening, an extended moment of flight. The car’s stunt sequence, a wondrous suspension of regular gravity. A panoramic view of the whole valley, after the Shelby blasted through treetops, over the guardrail atop Lookout Hill. Except for the impact, the current dire paralysis, otherwise a peak experience.
