Patriots player Harvey Langi has tearful reunion with his wife after car crash

The last time Harvey Langi saw his wife, she was lying “lifeless” on the ground, bleeding after a terrible car wreck.

So when the New England Patriots linebacker was finally able to see her again, three days later, the emotional reunion left them both in tears.

"Hiiii, you okay?" the burly NFL rookie said as he hobbled on crutches into Cassidy Langi's room at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Bending down gingerly, he wrapped his banged-up wife in a big bear hug.

"Aw, look at us ... I'm so sorry it took me so long to come see you," he lamented. "I love you so much."

A video of the touching moment was posted Wednesday on Cassidy's Instagram page, where she recounted the terrifying details of the Oct. 13 crash that put them both in the hospital.

According to her account and local reports, the couple was returning to their Foxborough apartment after a night out together when they were rear-ended by another car. The impact sandwiched their car between a third vehicle stopped in front of them, according to NBC Boston.

"I completely blacked out and don’t remember anything, while Harvey remembers seeing me, his wife, laying lifeless and gushing blood,'' Cassie wrote.

Cassidy broke both hips, some ribs and was monitored for internal injuries, while Harvey suffered head and neck injuries, according to local reports. Three other people were also taken to the hospital.

"It’s been 3 days since that moment and we were finally reunited," Cassidy wrote on Instagram. "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."

Cassidy's father, Rick Wahlin, told the Deseret News the jaws of life were used to remove Harvey and Cassie from their car.

"They are torn up but very lucky to be alive," Wahlin said. "All Harvey has cared about his how Cassie is doing, that's been his biggest concern ..."

Harvey Langi, 25, is a rookie linebacker who signed with the Patriots in May as an undrafted free agent out of Brigham Young University.

He has one tackle in one game this season, and missed Sunday's win over the New York Jets while recovering from the crash.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said at a postgame news conference Sunday that the team's thoughts were with the Langis and their families.

"We pray that they’re being looked over and that they’re doing better. It sounds like they are, but that was a very unfortunate situation and one that I think shook everybody in the organization."

The Langis are just happy to have one another after the terrifying ordeal.

"I know this is a huge trial we will be facing but I know we can get through this together, day by day,'' Cassie wrote on Instagram. "Thank you for always loving me and staying by my side through it all. I love you with all my heart babe."
