so i'm on the can playing solitare on my phone when suddenly there's POUNDING at my front door. WTF? none of my friends ever do that... so i clean up and head to the door and no one is there. odd. i turn on the lights and lite up a cig on the porch thinking nothing of it, or that it wasn't even my door at all (neighbors had guests over... could have been car doors closing, etc (mind you im in the bathroom with the fan on)) then i hear sirens. nothing out of the ordinary.... i'm a side street off a main road (state route) so they go by all the time. then they turn off. great. someone wrecked at the end of my street, i think to myself. nope, they are coming this way. 1 cop cruiser and 2 ambulances rush up the neighbors driveway. followed shortly after by the neigbor (wife) running down the street. must've been her who knocked. so, i run inside and turn on my outside lights on the side of the house to aid in visibilty (its dark up at the top of our driveways... set in from the raod a ways). And that's when i noticed the neighbors friend lying in the back yard motionless. oh shit. Well, there's not much i can do now and the EMS people are here so i kinda just hang back and watch. I'm still not 100% sure what happened. they all got in a car and chased the ambulance to the hospital so there's no one to talk to. They WERE cutting down some trees earlier (before dark... over an hour ago since the sun set and before i went to the can no biggie... they've been clearing brush and small trees on and off all summer at the back of their property. didn't look like a tree fell on him (he wasn't even in the rear of the yard where they were clearing) and i hadn't heard the chain saw in over an hour so i don't think he cut a finger off or something. I dunno. I guess the moral of the story is, i was on the can when the neighbor needed me... kinda feel like ass because i thought nothing of it and took my time wiping my ass and getting to the door. Hope the guy ends up ok. His wife was crying and the neighbor was making the sign of the cross over and over again so i don't know.
