Tanning is Really Bad For You, Especially in Daytona.
Did you hear about the poor sunbathing mother who was run over by a lifeguard truck? As if UVA rays weren’t bad enough, now we need to worry about getting crushed as we try to achieve a healthy glow.
The story, which I first heard about on the Today Show, is terrible and amazing at the same time. She didn’t see/hear it coming. Has no recollection of it. And she’s alive. While she does suffer some paralysis in one side of her face, she seems relatively unscathed. But, her 8-year-old daughter saw it all happen. And the woman has bouts of extreme pain. And, let’s face it, she was run over. I’m not sure how you come back from that.
The driver, a 21-year-old, was not charged. This is what I don’t understand. There is a specific driving lane for the lifeguard truck. And he went off it. But still, no charges. And if this woman’s story wasn’t enough, the county is now (keyword being “now”) investigating the situation, since the same thing happened last year at the same beach, except last year, two children were killed. Are you kidding me? Way to act fast, Daytona.
Guess who will not be making a visit to your beach?
