I was awakened by the enormous sound of one copter this morning and watched out the window -- shortly after I heard the second. It was horrible to know that one sound represented a bad accident, but both was doubly disheartening. May all the victims involved recover. Thank goodness for Holliston's Emergency responders for being there to save them.

This is a bad corner to navigate especially taking a left onto Goulding from Norfolk. Prayers and good thoughts for all involved..
