A young woman traveling with a group slipped and fell down some stairs at a train station. Since she was towards the rear of the group, it was not discovered until they were on the train and realized she was not with them.
The group was able to exit the train in time and find their friend. She was taken to a hospital for treatment, where she remained for two months.
Her distraught family flew to Japan to take care of her, where she remained unstable in a coma. After two months, the family paid $90,000 for a medical evacuation flight to take her home for further care.
After two additional months of care, she died last Wednesday. She had just turned 33 years old.
Even though money is of no importance to the family after such a tragedy, there is also no need for the additional stress. Their thoughts should be with each other in this difficult time. In the end, that is what is important.
This story truly illustrates that anything can happen.
