For Roman German
« on: June 15, 2009, 01:34:53 PM »
Yesterday Roman German, the youngest son of a Ukrainian parliament member, Anna German, tragically died in a car crash in Ukraine.

The boy was only 16.

Witnesses say that after the car where Roman was riding got under the wheels of a heavy trailer truck, his body was literally torn to pieces, head severed, etc. The other person who was in the car, the driver, survived but remains in the hospital, in critical condition.

Both the driver and the deceased boy were in the state of severe alcohol intoxication at the moment of the crash...

Lord, have mercy on Roman's soul, and on the survived driver, and on us all...
Love never fails.

That is very sad and that both were so intoxicated....

May he rest in peace.  :(
