Are you f*cking serious? How the f*ck do you think it feels?

I've seen people I know die. I've seen people I don't know, strangers on the street, die. I've seen people die in car crashes, and in hospitals. I was at my grandfather's bedside when he took his last breath for f*cks sake. How does it feel? Not too good.

When my grandad was i'll due to cancer he didn't want to go to Hospital so he was at home for his last parts of his life, he was just breathing loudly for quite a while when i was around and are family were just talking to each other like normal and next minute the loud breathing just stopped and i was sitting right next to him.

That was pretty weired and i wouldn't want to go through that again.

f*cking same situation,only mine died a few hours later after he was taken to a hospital.He looked all weak and poor when i saw him last,didnt even know my name... sad.gif
Death was the only way for him to rest,and that was the best.

I didnt see my mum die, But in the hospital it was so wierd to see her just how she always was but just not there, if you know what i mean??

But i think its odd that as a society we have moved so far away form the whole reality of death. Death is as much a part of life as eating, without the possibility of death life would be meaningless. Nowadays we are scared of death because for alot of us we dont face it until its our turn. And i was wandering do you think we should be more accepting of death and come to terms with it rather than pretend it never happens? whatsthat.gif

My older brother used to work at the Grady Medical Center Emergency Room. Grady's a trauma center in Atlanta, so I'm sure he's seen his fair share. He's a pretty relaxed guy so the experience didn't really affect him too much, but he did tell me that he's spent some of the worst nights of his life in the emergency rooms.

I have thought about that sort of thing a lot. Death is like the elephant in the room that no one acknowledges. It seems so sad to me, I just think of a random person that I know, or just a face that I've seen, like my old pizza boss... I imagine him saying like, "Yeah, I'm gonna die" all serious after someone confronts him about it... his face getting all red, I can see the denial in his face. I guess that's taking it to an extreme, I was on shrooms when I thought this. I just see the majority of people uncomfortable about the thought... that sort of denial is disturbing.

I know I'll die, but it is one of those things... through our experiences only people around us die, not us. We might know that it's going to happen on an intellectual level, but there's always that denial, that impossibility of really being able to come to honest grips with that sort of thing. I think about death a lot, it's a unique perspective as an atheist. I think the hard part is the process, thinking about not being connected to the world that we know in any way that sucks... but actually not existing? It'll be like before birth, there wont be anything I think.

Back in 2005 when I went on a family holiday to Bulgaria, as Bulgaria was not in the EU back then it was pretty f*cked up, Dancing bears, Mafia controlling every hotel in our area, 2 and 3 year old beggars tugging at your leg, prostitutes coming onto my 10 year old cousin.

With that in mind I suppose deaths were'nt mush of a major deal, as it proved with what happened.

Not one, but two people died on that holiday, I witnessed one, and heard the other.

The first one was on our 4th day, we were all at the beach, the atmosphere was calm, we were all having a good time. When suddenly, Three paramedics come rushing by us to go aid an elderly woman, who had suffered from a heart attack.

At this time she was still alive so paramedics tried desperately to ressusatate the woman. They were at it for a full 45 minutes, before they gave up and escorted the now deceased woman into the ambulance, with her whole family trailing and in tears, screaming and the such.

It was not the best moments of my life, and kinda' pierced my stomach.

The second one was at the hotel beside ours, we were all beside the pool having a laugh when suddenly we heard a massive "BANG", it was a gunshot. Silence occured for a split second and then a mass of screams, apparently, an employee at the hotel was shot directly in the head by the Bulgarian mafia, nobody made a move to the mafia as they controlled everything, they had to do nothing until they left.

As you can guess this shook me up and was not the best holiday I've ever bin on, not by a long shot. I mean, we even witnessed a man break his back after clattering into another man on a jet ski at 60+ m/p/h.

I will remember this holiday a hell of a lot, but not for the good times we had, not by a long shot.

Man, this topic could use a Saying Goodbye to Loved Ones linky.

You can not get out of it. Death is a part of life. That is part of where finding meaning and purpose in life gets its crediblity.

You never get used to it when it repeats and if you think you have then you have some serious problems to work out.

I watched a guy get killed due an Abrams' 120mm cannon. T'was a nasty sight, blood coming out of his eyes, ears, mouth, and nose all at once. Something alone the lines of fractured scull or something dealing with heavy head trauma. I dont know if the barrel hit him or anything, I wasn't there for the initial incident. I just came abouts 5 minutes later because my Colonel ordered me there to do crowd control.

Eh...we all have our times to go, I guess it was his.

I've seen a lot of death, and everytime, it leaves a scar.

Just two days ago, responded to a vehicle accident where a 1 ton truck had T boned a small sedan in the driver's side door. The driver's head had seen so much trauma, it had crushed his skull.

I've seen many die from motorcycle and vehicle accidents, seen a young girl killed by dogs, seen people die by fire, and those who've drowned.

I've had friends die in my arms, I've had friends OD and die laying beside me, I've had a family member pull out a gun and blow their brains out in front of me.


It's nothing you look forward to seeing. It's something that never leaves you.

I never actually saw someone die, but i was close to. Me and my family was living in a house next to my grandparents' house about 6 years ago. I was sitting on the couch watching TV as i would normally do, when my aunt comes over screaming and crying saying that our grandfather had died. all of my family started crying, (except me, my father, and my brother because death does not make us cry bored.gif ) and i looked out my side door and saw the paramedics carrying the body out on a stretcher. The police had come over first and told us he had died, and i guess he knew he was going to die because he left a note telling us what he would like to be buried in. I am always sad when my relatives or friends die, but never cry. I hope i never witness any more deaths of people close to me. sad.gif

I've never seen anyone die. I have seen bad accidents, though (with people who could have died).

About four or five years ago at Navy Pier, my dad was helping out at the Winter Wonderfest (he works for the Pier, and he brought me along to help), and a little kid jumped off an inflateable slide and injured his back. When I saw him, his eyes were rolled to the back of his head, he was foaming at the mouth, and he wasn't moving. When the cops and paramedics came, they couldn't understand what the father was saying (he was Mexican and just spoke Spanih), so my dad, who's very fluent in Spanish, had to talk to the guy and tell the cops what he saw. The boy lived, but the whole incident scared the hell out of me.

I was on vacation in Mexico and someone had been pulled out to sea, and people were trying to rescue him. When they pulled him in, my cuz tried to save him but it was no use . . . they thought that he was already dead. But I witnessed her giving him CPR and I was a couple feet away.

Emotions: none, really. I was actually waiting for something to hit me while I was watching . . . all I felt was that everybody has a deathclock. Kinda scary, actually, thinking that it will happen to me too.

This still haunts me to today. It was like 5 or 6 years ago. Me and my family were driving back from Long Beach after visiting my uncle and there was a huge traffic jam and we had no idea why. Then as we got further I noticed smoke and something glowing. Then we got even further and saw a bus pulled over and then we saw a car on fire with someone inside it burning. To this day I don't know if he was already dead or not but it really messed me up for weeks.

I do indeed. I just got back from work and saw this topic, so I'll post a little something about it.

I've seen someone die, in fact it was much worst than that. I not only watched this man die, but he died in my arms as I tried to help him stay alive. It wasn't a heart attack, or a bad fall, the death I dealt with was cold blooded murder, multiple gunshots to the torso, and all for nothing.

For those like roper who were around a year ago, they might remember the topic I created the same night it happened. I pretty much got home at 5 AM after waiting on the cops and started typing since I couldn't sleep, and although I have that topic saved someplace, I won't post that unless requested.

Pretty much what happened was this;

the man (a regular customer at my store) walked out the front door to talk on his cellphone in his car while he waited for his son. As he sat right in front of the store parked, less then 10 feet away from where I was standing, two guys walked up to the driver side of the car, pulled out two guns and let off 8 quick rounds. During the first 3 myself and others thought they were fireworks, but as they continued we realized it was gunfire and ducked. After they stopped I popped up to see what happened and my eyes instantly focused on to the man in his car only a few feet away from me. The driver side window was shattered, and I saw his head slumped down and to the right before he stopped moving.

Instinct kicked in for me, I directed my co-worker to call the police, and my feet took me to the door. By this time the son had come to the front, and I told him as I began to run out that his father had been shot. I ran to the car opening the passenger door and crawled inside to him. The first thing that hit me as I entered the car was the thick smell of gunpowder. It burned my nostrils and was very strong. I could tell he was breathing shallowly, but wanted to see how I could help him so I went around the car to the driver side. By this time, his son had opened the other side and started screaming and crying. I pushed passed him and leaned in over the man to see what I could do. I could see where bullets had grazed his arm, and where others had pierced the side of his body. I dont know how to explain it though, but when someone dies in front of you, you can tell exactly when they are gone. I was trying to feel for a pulse on this man's neck, and I could tell he was alive one minute, and then dead the next. It wasn't a question, or guess. I literally watched this mans life leave him in an instant.

Having to watch anyone die, especially at such a close range is something I'd never wish anyone to have to deal with. But it is an experience thats impossible to fully understand unless you go through it first hand. Seeing the aftermath is nothing compared to being thrust into the situation that leads up to it. confused.gif

yeah. It turned out the whole thing had been planned by the son. He had two friends do the shooting, and another two in the getaway car. Their mistake was having stolen the car from one of their own mothers, which resulted in the arrest of 2, and quickly after the arrest of the rest. He set his own father up and all for insurance money he wouldn't have ever gotten anyways since his mother was still alive. It was overall really f*cked up.

I'm still waiting to see if I need to be brought in to testify considering i was the only person there (other than officers) to talk or deal with the son before, or during, the shooting.

I've never seen death before, but its ben around me and my area i live quite a bit in the last few years...

First, my grandad died in 2003, i wasnt there but half my family were beside him when he took his last breath, very sad apparently.
I have a good last memory of him though, we (me, my brother and dad) were in the hospital with before we knew he was dying, he had a pain in his leg every now and then and had to get up and grab something cos of how bad the pain was, he was against the window getting the pain, but every time he moaned he would fart, was quit funny, i couldnt start laughing, and neither could he biggrin.gif , i've been told that its best ti have a funny/nice moment as the last moment with a loved one though, so i'm glad i didnt visit while he was in a very bad state, mum and dad said he was completely different, and was for the best as to remember him the way he was when (almost) normal.

My brother was riding his scooter around town once and turned into a road, but suddenly a cop stopped him and told him to go another way round, ass he started to turn around he loked down the road and saw a guy laying in the middle of the road, with blood everywhere, and running down the street in a thick stream into a drain, at the time he didnt know if the guy was alive or dead.
The next day we found out the guy had jumped/was pushed off of the 7 story car park next to the road, police think it was either an accident, or suicide, but there was nobody with him at the time so are unsure.

A year ago a guy driving a hatchback was speeding along a road nearby me (bout 1/4 a mile) he had 2 girls in the car with him. He flipped the car somehow, it roled and crashed into a wall killing both girls instantly, but he survived. A month ago he was sentanced to 4 years in prison (estimate, cant remember exact amount), as the car was stolen and he was driving way above the speed limit, and cause the death of the 2 girls.

A guy hung himself in his house a couple blocks away from me, but i didn't know him.

An area of flatts nearby (fully of drugys and kids that think they are tough) was home to a very friendly and popular elderly woman, the woman was found dead in the bus station in the city centre, she died from a stab wound that was apparently done by a group of the kids (younger than 14 years old approximatly) that lived in her area.

Few months ago a friend of mine that lives down the road from me lost a friend, he was involved in a scooter accident.
And lastly a couple months ago a guy in a construction site was killed by a skip full of debris that fell from a crane and crushed him.

Most of those people were just startin their lives (just left school/about to leave school etc..), you dont ever expect an accident like the car crash or skip accident to ever happen to you or anyone you know, but it does.
Its also unfair for the younger people that havnt lead a full life yet, you never know when it will happen to you, unless u have a life threatening ilness, then you got some idea and can plan the rest of your life, and hopefuly do the things you've always wanted to do, like going to exotic countries or skydiving etc...

You just have to accept that its going to happen sometime, and try to live the fullest life you can (although i dont seem to be doing that these days).

People are born faster than people die these days, but everyone should get the chance to live to 70 or 80 years old, and hopefuly die peacfuly in your sleep, its what most people want, and is unfair when a someone young just starting their lives with degrees and qualifications in watever and great ieas for a perfect future dies in a freek accident, then some evil crime lord with virtualy no qualifications lifes to 80 or something and dies peacfuly, a f*cked up world we live in, but like i said, everyones got to die someday.

Yes. I saw my uncle shoot my parents, and my sister and I ran to get away. He didn't chase us or anything.. He was really drunk. Sadly, deaths like that are not quite uncommon in Finland (when deaths happen). I remember it, but not very well, because if I try to think about it I usually will get upset for the rest of the day.

Man I remember when you posted that sh*t the first time Toga. Still f*cked up as it was before.

But anyway, I've never seen someone actually die. Just back in 2nd grade me and some friends were wandering around the school grounds playing "detective" and we came upon this tree out on the track and there was a guy with a noose around his neck leaning against the tree and from what I remember about 20-30 beer bottles surrounding him. Some of the kids threw rocks at his mouth until they hit it and his mouth opened, then some of 'em ran away screaming. It was right next to my house too because I lived RIGHT next to the school. sh*t was f*cked up, they tried to tell us it wasn't real and it was just a Halloween decoration because it was around that time, but I don't think an ambulance would carry away a decoration in a body bag, do you?
