As I was driving back from a new listing appointment this afternoon, I witnessed a terrible accident. It was on Ponce de Leon Ave in Atlanta. A motorcycle went down and its driver went down too. I immediately pulled over and ran to the man on the ground. Another person called 911. I knelt down next to the man and talked to him. His name was Joseph and he was 72. I asked if he had anybody he wanted to call. I held his hand and told him he was going to be fine. He just needed to stay still until the paramedics got there. Somebody grabbed a towel from their car and we put it under his head. Thank God he was wearing a helmet. He asked about his cell phone. I found it in his vest pocket and I put it inside a zippered one so he wouldn't lose it as he was transported to the hospital.
I haven't stopped thinking about him all day. Which brings up the question, do you have ICE on your cell phone? ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. You put the contact number that should be called if you are unable to speak.
I've had ICE programmed in my phone for several years now. Go ahead and add ICE in your contacts on your cell phone and the phones of your spouse and your children and your elderly parents.
Do it now, it takes just a second.
