Albany- At 4:35 PM, with emergency medical technicians still trying to keep him alive, Corporal Andrew Hayslip arrived at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.
About five minutes later, the mother of his son, Ladonna Wilkerson was wheeled into the Emergency Room. And right behind the ambulances, dozens of family, friends and other law enforcement officers rushed to the hospital, still in shock.
"Certainly you don't see anything like this coming so it definitely surprised us. I was just getting back into town and heard the news, so I was very shocked and felt obligated to just come to be here for them, and to be here for the community," says Bishop Frederick Williams.
Williams knows the Hayslip family both on a personal and spiritual level. He says they are a close family and offers words of encouragement to get them through this tragedy.
"Trust God. We know that they are still facing the shock. Our message to them is that God is still in control, and though it seems tragic right now we're trying to encourage them. They're going to get through it, and prayer is the key."
The key that will keep the family together and may help them find some peace after one of the most devastating days of their lives.
Bishop Williams was one of nearly a half dozen Albany area pastors and ministers that counseled and consoled family and friends at the hospital.
