When highway patrol troopers attended a fatal car crash on Sunday night they discovered a rare and touching sight amid the horrifying crash scene.
In the wreckage was an elderly couple and the lady was still holding hands with her husband.
Floyd Nordhagen, 92, was already dead and his wife, Margaret, 88, would soon die at the crash scene.
Livestock breeders in the rural community of Chattaroy in Washington state, the Nordhagens were known among their friends and neighbors for their devotion to each other, reports KREM news.
Floyd was a “man who would help anyone in need, and a husband who always took great care of his wife, who suffered from Alzheimer’s”.
Friends told KREM that Floyd “always bragged about Margaret and how pretty she was.”
