On January 7th, Tyre Nichols’ mother Row Vaughn Wells’ life was shattered when her son was brutally beaten by five cops right outside of her Memphis home. As the details of the incident came to light, she soon realized that what she had been told about the extent of his injuries did not match up with reality. In this article, we’ll hear Row Vaughn as she recounts what happened and how she felt upon finding out the truth.
In the wake of George Floyd’s death, many have come forward with similar stories of police brutality and mistreatment. Tyre Nichols’ mother is one of them; she has claimed that she was misled about the extent of her son’s injuries after he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
Tyre Nichols’ mother, Row Vaughn Wells, said that she was “shocked” when she saw her son’s injuries. “I just couldn’t believe it,” she said. “It just seemed like everything happened so fast.” Stephanie said that she has been struggling to cope with what happened to her son. “It’s hard to see him in pain and not be able to do anything about it,” she said. “I feel like I’m failing as a mother.”
The unfortunate experience of Tyre Nichols and his mother has highlighted the importance of being completely informed about the extent of injuries a person might sustain in an accident. The fact that Tyre’s mother was not aware of her son’s full injury report until after he had passed away is heart-breaking, and serves as a reminder to all medical professionals to keep family members adequately informed when dealing with such traumatic cases. We hope that this story will raise awareness among doctors and give solace to those who have experienced similar situations.
