Blaine family full of heroes
Terri Hemsworth of Blaine was not feeling well and was having trouble breathing April 26. She brushed it off, however, and told her family that she did not need to see a doctor. She promised to let them know if anything happened again.
Around 6 a.m. the next day (April 27), she started having an embolism. She told her husband that she could not breathe and she does not remember anything after that.
What her husband Eugene Hemsworth remembers is that he told her to get dressed and prepare to go to the hospital. At this point, his wife of 46 years fell off their king-size bed and onto the bedroom floor.
Their son Tony and his wife Amy were living downstairs in the Hemsworth’s Blaine home at the time while they were between houses. After hearing the thud and quickly finding out that Tony’s mother had fallen, they went upstairs to help out in any way they could. See more in Eric Hagen’s ABC Newspapers exclusive.
