Dream of the Day: Flipping Out

I was at a performance of some sort.  One act had just finished and we were waiting for the next to begin.  A young black girl appeared on the stage.  On older black man appeared on the stage.  He had gold teeth and a black curly beard.  I immediately thought that he seemed skechy.  The girl was at one side of the stage, and the man at the other.  She ran towards him and he lowered his hands for her to step into.  He launched her into the air.  Immediately I was aware that something was wrong.  She was supposed to go straight up but she was going backwards.  I heard people around me screaming.  She landed with her back hitting the corner of the stage.  I looked away and wanted to run away but knew I had to help since I had medical training.  I shouted for someone to call 911.  I knew that wasn’t what I had learned.  I acknowledged individuals and had them dial 911.  I ran to the girl.  She was on the floor below the stage with her face away from me.  I knelt beside her and touched her arm.  She turned to look at me.  “You’re going to be ok,” I said.  She had minimal reaction.  She started to roll over.  I tried to tell her not to because I was concerned about her spine.  She continued to roll, people might have been assisting her in rolling.  I tried again to get her to stop.
