The rest of the story

I am writing in response to the story regarding James Melvin. There was another story there. My son, Rex Lint, who lives in Summit County, was apparently the first on the scene of this terrible accident.

I talked with him a couple days after the incident and he told me how he had to break into the smashed car from the back window and crawl into a very small space still open next to James and care for him as best he could while he also was contacting the emergency help that came.

During the time while they were waiting – well, Rex has that story to tell. He is an EMT and if James has a chance of survival now, I’m sure Rex is a big part of that story.

Obviously, I’m a proud mother. But for Rex, this is just something he does. Our hopes and prayers are with Mr. Melvin and his family.
