May I know on what occasion you visualised that incident. Did u read any story or watched some movie or heard some body describing like that.  If u want to come out of that thought u need to replace it with a good incident or thought which u recently liked or enjoyed OR which you want instead.

Hi

Ruminations of disturbing memories & negative thoughts are quite common for few days after witnessing a traumatic event. You need to be mindful about these experiences & emotions in the context. Practice yoga, relaxation, breathing techniques & distractions by normalising these experiences in the context. However if it is worsening in frequency, intensity or duration & is causing lot of distress, please consult a psychiatrist for appropriate techniques to handle & may even benefit from medicine for sometime. Regards
