After rolling his 1994 Honda Accord three times, Zody had to have 4 inches of muscle stitched together and sewn back into his left arm and multiple stitches and staples put into his head. His car, pictured, shows the blood-soaked driver’s seat stained by his severe head injury, leaving little wonder why the Airman suffered a concussion and memory loss. (Courtesy photo)

She said she had always been taught that a flight suit was fire-retardant up to 700 to 800 degrees.

She now stores the charred flight suit in a shadow box … protecting it as it once protected her. (Courtesy photo)
