Concerned for their well-being after the incident, a friend of the two spoke out.
My sweetheart, no way! She posted on Facebook, “My heart is broken.”
My heart is overflowing with love for you both, Tyson and Cass; you are both so courageous and resilient.
Can you believe it? I don’t know what I’d do without you in my life.
