I Was Almost Killed
Yesterday, around 4pm, I was in Clapham with my son. We had decided to go for an after-school snack at Esca. We stopped at the crosswalk, pressed the button and waited. The traffic’s red light came on, my green guy came up, the beeper started beeping and we started crossing the road. After about 3 steps my son pulled my arm back just as a huge lorry ran the lights at full speed. If I had preempted my green guy by a second they would have still been cleaning me off the road now.
I bought my son a slice of chocolate cake for saving my life.
