Chris Hensley recently described how he wandered around the scene of a deadly car crash searching for his son, Cody. He begged emergency personnel to help him find his teenage boy as they were scrambling to help the victims of the one-car accident.
After an hour of watching as survivors were hauled away in ambulances, first responders took the McKinney father to the open field where his son was laying, lifeless.
“The chaplain had walked over and said, ‘Sorry I have to tell you this, but Cody didn’t make it,’” Hensley recalled. “I see him there lifeless, and all I can do is say, ‘Cody, please get up. Cody, please come with us.’ But he didn’t. Because he was laying in the middle of a field. Off Monte Carlo Road. Under a white blanket. Dead.”
But this father’s agony was just beginning.
