New England Patriots rookie linebacker Harvey Langi and his wife, Cassidy, were hospitalized after a car accident less than five days ago.
The two were injured and had to be transported to the hospital after an SUV rear-ended the Langis’ car. The accident was so severe they both had to be freed by the jaws of life before they were taken to different hospitals.
That made the couple’s reunion on Wednesday even more special. Cassidy detailed the ordeal in an Instagram post:
Friday the 13, 2017 was date night for Harv and I On our way home we stopped at the light to turn to our house, when all of a sudden a SUV rammed straight into us. I completely blacked out and don’t remember anything, while Harvey remembers seeing me, his wife, laying lifeless and gushing blood. It’s been 3 days since that moment and we were finally reunited. We have been in the hospital for a few days and still have a few days to go. We are so completely blessed to have each other to lean on through all of this craziness. We are so grateful for all of our family and friends who have taken the time to come visit us, reached out to us, prayed for us, and have shown us their love and support. Our hearts are completely full right now ❤️ I just want my husband Havea to know how blessed I am to be your wife. I know this is a huge trial we will be facing but I know we can get through this together, day by day. Thank you for always loving me and staying by my side through it all. I love you with all my heart babe

“I completely blacked out and don’t remember anything, while Harvey remembers seeing me, his wife, laying lifeless and gushing blood,” she wrote.
In Cassidy’s heartfelt post she also said it had been three days since they had seen each other, which can definitely be scary after being separated after a serious car accident.

According to NBC Sports, Cassidy was more seriously injured in the accident than the undrafted rookie out of BYU. Cassidy suffered broken ribs and fractures in both hips.
Langi suffered neck and head injuries. He’s using crutches to walk around.
The day following the accident, the Patriots sent out a statement regarding Langi’s accident.

Langi has played in only one game and has one tackle for the Patriots. But when you go through a scare like he and his wife did the only moments that really matter are the ones like he and his wife shared in their reunion.
