Brandweerman sterft bij ernstig ongeluk: als familie een brief vindt met zijn laatste woorden, is hun wereld verpletterd

De gemiddelde mens houdt er niet van om zijn / haar leven in gevaar te brengen. Het is normaal om tenslotte weg te willen blijven van dingen die een bedreiging kunnen vormen voor je leven.

Natuurlijk, voor mensen met bepaalde beroepen, kan elke dag van hun leven een risico zijn.

Toen orkaan Michael vorige week alles in Florida verwoestte, waren de reddingsdiensten in de frontlinie er als het erom ging om de getroffen mensen te helpen.

Een van de mannen die zijn leven riskeerde om anderen te helpen was de 43-jarige brandweerman en de vader van vier, Brad Clark.

Helaas zou hij nooit naar zijn familie terugkeren.

Brad Clark was een van de vier brandweerlieden die tijdens de orkaan Michael afgelopen donderdag ernstig gewond raakten.

De storm verwoestte delen van Florida en veroorzaakte grootschalige ravage. Er worden nog steeds 1,135 mensen vermist.

Brad reed met een brandweerwagen door de storm in een poging om mensen te bereiken die hulp nodig hadden toen hij met een ander voertuig in botsing kwam. Het ongeluk kostte hem zijn leven en hij stierf ter plekke.

Twee van zijn collega’s werden ook naar het ziekenhuis gebracht met levensbedreigende verwondingen, volgens de Richmond Times Dispatch.

Familieman Brad liet partner Melanie en hun vier dochters Brady, Lilly, Olivia en Madison achter.

Collega’s en familieleden waren er snel bij om Brad te herinneren vanwege zijn humor en goed humeur. Zijn dood raakte een groot aantal levens, wat blijkt uit de vele betuigingen van liefde en steun sinds zijn overlijden. Geboren in een brandweerfamilie, wilde hij altijd in de voetstappen van zijn vader treden.

Brad’s vader, die ook als brandweerman diende, vertelde hoe trots hij was op zijn zoon.

“Brad stierf terwijl hij deed waar hij het meest van hield,” legde zijn vader uit.

Het werd al snel duidelijk dat Brad tot op het laatst een held was.

Vlak voordat hij stierf, gaf hij een waarschuwing door aan andere brandweermannen over de weersomstandigheden. Het was de waarschuwing van Lt. Clark die verschillende anderen redden.

Honderden komen samen voor de begrafenis
Honderden mensen kwamen samen om te rouwen om Brad bij zijn begrafenis, die een paar dagen geleden plaatsvond.

Zijn broer, Jonathan Clark, las een brief tijdens de ceremonie – een die Brad van tevoren had geschreven. Zijn instructies waren om de brief te lezen mocht hij sterven in de frontlinie.

“Ik heb de wedstrijd tegen Magere Hein verloren. Ik had liever niet gezien dat al mijn dierbaren voor deze reden samenkwamen, maar we zullen er het beste van maken,’ zei J. Clark, die de brief van Lt. Clark las aan de aanwezigen.

“Ik heb heel veel gelachen met jullie allemaal,” vervolgde J. Clark. “Ik vind het heerlijk om mensen te laten glimlachen, dus ik weet zeker dat je weet dat ik veel van mijn leven heb doorgebracht om jullie glimlach te zien.”

In de brief nam hij ook de tijd om zijn liefde voor zijn mede-brandweerlieden te delen, toen hij zijn gevoelens met grote warmte beschreef.

Brad wees er ook op dat zijn grootste bron van vreugde, steun, vriendschap, inspiratie en motivatie echter afkomstig was van zijn eigen familie.

“Nu, ik ben een vrije geest, hoog rondvliegend en ernaar strevend om over jullie allemaal te waken,” stond in de brief.

Er werd gehuild toen Brad’s woorden werden voorgelezen, vooral het stuk over de liefde die hij voelde voor zijn vrouw. Hij gaf ook een reeks instructies voor zijn dochters; dat ze nooit genoegen moesten nemen met een relatie die minder was dan wat hij en hun moeder deelden.

“Werk hard, geef niet op, vecht voor wat je wilt en geloof in jezelf en laat de meningen van anderen je nooit afschrikken van wat je hart zegt,” vertelde Brad zijn meisjes via de brief.

Orkaan Michael heeft tot nu toe het leven van 29 mensen opgeëist. Ware helden als Brad er niet geweest, dan zou dat aantal zeker hoger hebben gelegen.

Helaas moest hij het met zijn eigen leven betalen, en nu zullen die van zijn familie en collega’s nooit meer hetzelfde zijn.

Deel dit artikel alstublieft om Brad te herdenken en eer te bewijzen aan een beroep altijd zal blijven proberen onschuldige levens te redden!
