‘Don’t let him die’

Lynn Worrell’s wails were painfully realistic during Tuesday’s VIP for a VIP (Vehicle Injury Prevention for a Very Important Person) presentation at South Columbus High School. Stallion students took part in classroom sessions during the morning, then witnessed a re-enactment of a deadly auto crash scene that ended after the young victim cried “don’t close that bag.” A non-profit enterprise launched in Guilford County in 1998, VIP for a VIP is presented state-wide as teams are available, and was last presented at South Columbus in 2010. Agencies taking part this year included the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, North Carolina Highway Patrol, Tabor City Police Department; Williams Township, Tabor City, and Brunswick fire departments; Columbus County Emergency Services and Fire Marshal’s offices; and Tabor City Emergency Services.
