"I watched him being taken away by the ambulance," she recalls. "We'd always been really close; and now I was rooted to the spot where he'd fallen, as all our moments together came flooding back. So there I was - alone, on my knees and in tears - because I thought he was going to die." Fortunately, Cade soon recovered; he and Olivia have been closer than ever since then, according to herself.
