Losing a child is the worst thing any parent will go through, and Kelli Cutinella from Long Island could attest to this when her son died in a football accident. However, grief can also bring people together, and through her son’s passing she found a deep connection with a complete stranger.
When Tom Cutinella had a helmet-to-helmet collision on the football field in October 2014, it was immediately clear that it was an unfair blow. His father Frank was watching in the stands and said as much to his friend alongside him. But when the teenager failed to get his feet, the extent of his injury soon became more apparent.
