Distinguish IIED from NIED. What are the necessary elements for each.....

IIED requires intent.

NIED requires expert testimony as to injury.

In NIED the injury witnessed must be serious or fatal. You no longer have to be within the zone of danger or a family member. Remember the Lourcey case?

legal cause. Proximate cause limits the liability of tortfeasor's actions.

apprehension means you know it's coming.
fear means you are afraid.
Mike Tyson can sue someone for assault if he sees it coming. Doesn't matter if he is afraid of it or not.
