It is awful to imagine the terror and brutality that invaded Sean Taylor's home in the middle of the night. Taylor, awakened by suspicious noises, tried to protect himself, his girlfriend and their baby by grabbing a machete hidden under his bed. But he had no chance. He was shot in the groin by an intruder, the bullet ripping through his femoral artery. He lost a tremendous amount of blood. He is hanging on, in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center.
