    Brian Wood spent his life thrilling millions of faceless gamers, but his last moment was spent saving the lives of those he loved most.


    Wood, a 33 year-old lead designer at popular game developer Relic Entertainment, was on his way back to his Washington home when his wagon was struck by an oncoming Chevy Blazer being driven by a 21 year-old woman believed to be driving under the influence. With his pregnant wife Erin in the passenger seat, Wood swerved his car to put himself directly in the path of the oncoming SUV -- a decision that ultimately cost him his life, but protected his wife and unborn child from harm. Two other passengers riding in the backseat of the Blazer were also killed.


    Rest of the amazing story at the link:

    RIP Brian, you died a true hero and your unborn child will be hearing stories of the father they never got to know but who is alive because of him.

    Now THAT brought tears to my eyes. What an incredible man, and just the pick-me-up I needed after being on the acid hoax thread! My husband is a gamer, and I sent the article to him.

    What a hero, what a gentleman, what a wonderful husband and father.

    It goes to show, there really are angels among us.

    Hugs,

    Mel
