The victim’s wife also opened up about her extremely upsetting experience. “I felt like I was rammed and thrown and my head hit the pavement, so I blacked out. To leave my husband on the floor laying to die… if I wasn’t there if he had a brain injury and was bleeding to death, who would help him?” she remarked. “She was on the ground knocked out, I was knocked out. Nobody came to help us,” the victim then remarked.
