Jeff, a 42-year-old attorney, married for 12 years and father of three, has always considered himself a very emotionally balanced individual. About six months ago, Jeff drove home from work late in the evening and a dog cut across the highway right in front of his car. He swerved to avoid hitting the animal but lost control of his car and drove off the road, rolling over before slamming into an embankment. His airbags inflated, which probably saved his life, but one bag covered his face and he felt like he was suffocating.

An ambulance came and took him to a nearby hospital. He was X-rayed and examined and, fortunately, did not suffer from any serious injuries.
