Wichita Falls Fireman Responds to Son's Crash

Every day, first responders risk their lives to protect citizens. 
 
But what if a call is for a family member?
 
For Wichita Falls Fire Department Captain Tim Moffett, that fear became a reality.
 
It began like any ordinary day for Captain Tim Moffett, a Wichita Falls Firefighter.
 
"I was actually sitting in my office doing paperwork and a call came in for an injury accident," said Captain Moffett. "You know, I heard it, but didn't pay too much attention to it." 
 
Moffett continued working as more chatter came across the radio, but then heard it was a motorcycle police officer involved crash.
 
"I grabbed my phone, because I knew he was working and called his number," said Captain Moffett. "It rang a couple times and somebody answered it but it wasn't him," he said.
 
That's when he knew it was his son. 
 
"So I just, I said, just tell me. Is he still alive?" asked Captain Moffett.
 
Thankfully, he was.
And as Captain Moffett was rushing to the scene a family who heard the accident, rushed to his son.
 
Brandon Pineda and others lifted the motorcyle off Officer Moffett, while his wife called 911.
 
"Get well." 
 
A note written by 10-year-old Haven Parker while her parents helped Officer Moffett.
 
"It just like really affected me," said Haven.
 
Haven didn't know who was injured, she just knew someone was in pain, but wanted to help.
 
"I wanted to write a note," said Haven. "I tore off a piece of paper from the back seat and then I was looking and found a green sharpie and wrote a heart and said get well." 
 
For Captain Moffett, he's thankful that people were there for his son when he couldn't be and thankful for Haven and her tiny piece of torn off paper.
