Patriots LB Harvey Langi's wife posts emotional video of hospital reunion

Days after Patriots linebacker Harvey Langi and his wife, Cassidy, were injured in car accident, she posted a video on Instagram of their tearful reunion in the hospital.

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 💜😘

An SUV slammed into the Langis' car as they waited at a red light Friday night near their apartment in Foxboro, about six miles from Gillette Stadium. 

Cassidy Langi sustained broken ribs and fractures to both hips. The injuries to Harvey Langi, an undrafted rookie free agent from BYU who made the team out of training camp, are considered less serious. Both had to be freed from the car with the jaws of life.
