    You're right Vickiej40, there is a nine year old boy in critical condition. My son is nine and I can't imagine what this family is going through. My prayers go out to the family and this young boy.

    aja0232 is correct. Whenever you use a phonetic sound that begins with a vowel ("es" as in SUV), the correct choice of articles would be "an" not "a". However, when you would say Sport Utility Vehicle, the word does not begin with a vowel sound ("s"), so you would use the article "a".

    Good thing you aren't an English teacher..."an" suv is correct---you send AN SOS but you send a "save our ship"...you may want to brush up the usage of "an" with an acronyms
