Back in the summer of 2007, a 22-year old kid named kevin Morton was working, attending college, and seemingly had his whole bright future ahead of him. However, while leaving work after one midnight shift, Kevin walked out into the parking lot to his own car as he’d done so many times before only to be gunned down by a thief in cold blood.
“My car was in reverse when I saw the shadow (of a man) coming up,” Morton said.
According to Kevin, there was a flash of light and a loud noise — Morton had been shot through the stomach and robbed. Instinctively, Morton knew he was bleeding out and needed immediate medical help, so he began to drive towards St. John Hospital, which was only a few miles away. Unfortunately, the state of his wounds were too big to overcome and Kevin passed out while driving and crashed off the side of the road. To say the situation was grim doesn’t even begin to paint the picture. Thankfully for Kevin, a random passer-by spotted Kevin’s car and dialed 911. Finally, a lucky break, but Kevin’s problems were far from over.
