Friday the 13, 2017 was date night for Harv and I On our way home we stopped at the light to turn to our house, when all of a sudden a SUV rammed straight into us. I completely blacked out and don’t remember anything, while Harvey remembers seeing me, his wife, laying lifeless and gushing blood. It’s been 3 days since that moment and we were finally reunited. We have been in the hospital for a few days and still have a few days to go. We are so completely blessed to have each other to lean on through all of this craziness. We are so grateful for all of our family and friends who have taken the time to come visit us, reached out to us, prayed for us, and have shown us their love and support. Our hearts are completely full right now ❤️ I just want my husband Havea to know how blessed I am to be your wife. I know this is a huge trial we will be facing but I know we can get through this together, day by day. Thank you for always loving me and staying by my side through it all. I love you with all my heart babe
We are absolutely loving this joyful, tearful reunion between former BYU Football player (current Patriots LB) Harvey Langi and his wife Cassidy (Instagram video above, posted by Cassidy earlier this week).
In the post, Cassidy shares the narrative of an awful crash she and Harvey were involved in on Fri., Oct. 13, 2017. She says they were headed to their Foxborough home after a night out, and were stopped at the light to turn and get to their house, when an SUV “rammed straight into them.” Local reports say the force from the SUV forced the Langi’s car forward, and into another car in front of them, sandwiching them. Cassidy’s father told media the jaws of life had to be used to remove the Langis from their car. Five people total were taken to the hospital. Here are some pics from the scene — pretty sobering.

Cassidy’s post expresses that she and Harvey, who have been married for a little over a year, were not able to see each other for three days after initially arriving at separate hospitals and due to injuries sustained. Reports say Cassidy broke both hips, some ribs, and was monitored for internal injuries. Harvey suffered head and neck injuries. In Cassidy’s Instagram post, she says that she completely blacked out and doesn’t remember a thing, but that Harvey has memory of looking over and seeing her lifeless and covered in blood. His relief to see her is pretty apparent, and oh so very tender. I know I breathed a sigh of relief watching the video. He wraps her up in a giant hug as soon as he can, and tells her how much he loves her.

Both Cougar Nation and Patriots Nation banded together in support, thought, and prayer after the accident. Patriot’s coach Bill Belichick told media the crash affected the whole Patriots organization. Both former and current BYU players tweeted their support for the Langis.
Cassidy’s Instagram post says she and Harvey’s stay at Massachusetts General Hospital will last a few more days (since the post was a few days ago, they could already be at home recovering). We’re so glad they’re on the mend. It’s great to see Harvey on his feet in the video, and Cassidy awake and alert.
