Could this cause trauma?
I watched my aunt have a seizure in the car.
After watching both my grandma die after taking care of her at 91, and my dad dying of cancer, in the same year, I immediately assumed she died after falling over limply from her seizure.
I sat in the backseat in shock, and cried all night when I got home. I took the next day off work because I was in a constant state of panic after it happened. I still think about it when I get in the car, and I can’t speak to my aunt because it makes me anxious.
I’ve experienced trauma from other situations but I’m not sure if this particular one could cause trauma in a second party?

If you're missing work because of the "trauma," then it's time to seek professional help. Make an appointment with a therapist who can help you find acceptable ways to handle your "trauma" and the resulting anxiety.
