(Newser) – A New Hampshire volunteer firefighter arrived at the scene of a car crash on Christmas Eve, only to make a heartbreaking discovery. Steve Whitcomb, one of the first rescue workers on the scene of a three-car pileup, pulled a dying woman from an SUV and learned only later that it was his own 30-year-old daughter. Her vehicle had been hit head-on by a pickup truck. "You grieve and then you try to pull it all together," Whitcomb tells a local paper.
