Brian Wood is a true hero, and will always be remembered as the man who sacrificed his own life to save the lives of his wife and unborn child.
Video game designer Wood was driving down the road with his pregnant wife, Erin, when he saw a Chevy Blazer getting ready to hit him head on. At the last minute, he swerved the car so that the impact would happen on the driver’s side instead of the passenger side where his wife was sitting.
In the midst of her grief, Erin Wood still took the time to thank the gaming community for their condolences. She wrote a letter to them asking for her “heartfelt thanks for their overwhelming support” to be passed on.
In the letter she also added, “From all the articles and comments, to the emails and donations, I am simply stunned and so touched by the love, kindness, and generosity shown to me and my family.”
Our hearts and prayers go out to Erin and her family during this difficult time.
