  1. I was there when this happened. I was just coming home from work when I saw the ambulances and police cars zoom by. Very tragic. A lot of screaming and sobbing. I don’t know the family but I wish them all the love and support in the world right now. The sound of their family members sobbing and screaming is something I won’t soon forget.

    801-583-2500. That’s the UNI crisis number. Please call that before making a decision that will leave your children orphaned, sobbing in the street.
