The article discusses the author's experience of saving her husband from an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accident. Her husband rode the ATV to go after a Hereford bull who got loose from its pen in their ranch. She was alarmed when she heard a noise from a distance and when she ran toward it, she heard his husband calling for help. When she saw that he was bleeding profusely, she asked for her daughter to call 911. She then grabbed a roll of gauze and stuffed it into the wound.
