You never think it could happen to someone you know. One of the Mechanical Engineering profs at my University was shot in the head in Trinidad over the weekend. He is in criticial condition in a Trinidadian hospital. I guess he and group of Canadians were on their way back to the hotel when they were robbed at gun point. The robbers ran away and Rob, the professor, flagged down a vehicle to take them to the hospital. The vehicle ended up being the robbers get-away car.
I can’t believe it. My prayers are with him and his family.
