By James F. McDonoughA traffic safety school student who was forced to flee from a traffic accident that left his wife and son dead in California last month will now take the chance to help others on the road.
A video posted on YouTube this week by Milwaukie Traffic Survival School shows the students, who have been studying traffic since the accident, being reunited with their children at the school.
Their story, which has received more than 4.4 million views, was originally posted on the Milwaunkie Traffic School Facebook page.
Their first stop was to the Milwee School for Families and Children.
They then went to the school’s main office to pick up their children, who were waiting for their parents to return home.
It was there that the video showed the students being reunited in a classroom with a small group of children.
They also were reunited with two of their family members who were also students at the MilWaukie school.
In a Facebook post, the school said it had received “some of the most positive feedback” on the video.
“Our first response was to say thank you to all of the people who helped us through this very difficult time,” the school wrote.
“It was also a great lesson in empathy and how to be present for your loved ones during a difficult time.”
The video has now been viewed nearly 13 million times and has been viewed more than 1.8 million times since it was posted on Monday.
