    This is an awful story. It had to be such a frightening and helpless feeling for them both.

    Makes you realize your life may depend on who you are with that day.

    Yup. If she had only gotten underneath him and propped him up...he might have been able to free himself. Very sad.

    How sad and unfortunate. The beer really wasn't worth it in the end, was it?

    He had a dozen 40's in the backpack? Isn't that about 30 lbs? Holy carp!

    Poor guy, and his girlfriend wasn't bright enough to pick him up instead of the back pack? Sheesh
