First responders escort medical doctors, donor lungs to Cincinnati Kids’s Hospital in snow

There was an incredible show of teamwork on Wednesday night as first responders escorted a donor organ and doctors to a child at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. They said there was only about two hours to get there and traffic had stopped. Some of these first responders shared their firsthand accounts of the treacherous trip. CVG firefighters said they were asked to take the doctors and donors to the children’s hospital after their flight was diverted. They said it was a bumpy, snowy ride. “It helps or is gratifying to help someone, on this one, and it was a team effort,” said Brian Norris, police chief of Cincinnati. In the middle of a snowstorm, these first responders showed diligence and care, and some of it got caught on the dashcam. “My thought was, how can we get this organ through this traffic jam?” Cincinnati Police Spc. Joe Stevens said: First responders worked together to deliver a series of donor lungs to a boy’s hospital. “The traffic was terrible the entire trip. I was just trying to squeeze between cars,” said CVG Firefighter and EMT Jason Baumann. He drove a CVG pickup from the airport with three doctors and the lungs on board. Your flight was diverted from Lunken Airport due to the snow. Baumann said they only had a two hour window to get to the hospital. “We spent most of the time driving it on 75 in the shoulder in about 10 inches of snow,” Baumann said. He said they were stuck on Hopple Street. Then Norris and the Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit came to help. “At least,” he said. Stevens knew that someone had selflessly given this gift of life and a second chance. “This was really an important event as there is no way to go wrong. We had to take this vehicle to the hospital with the doctor and the doctor organ” said Stevens. He helped them wind their way through the traffic paralyzed by Pre ipitation. “It was a weight off my shoulders,” said Baumann. Together they weathered a perfect storm and brought the doctors and donor lungs right to their front doors. “I feel very good that I was involved to help a family, maybe have a better life,” said Stevens. Baumann said the entire trip took more than an hour. Impressive, in the middle of the storm, they said they could have done this without direct communication There is no official word on how the boy is doing. The Cincinnati Children’s Hospital said it couldn’t discuss details of patient care. A spokeswoman released a statement saying, “Cincinnati Children’s is grateful and grateful to the Cincinnati Police Department. CVG Fire Department and the pilots who have helped in difficult conditions.”

There was an incredible show of teamwork on Wednesday night as first responders escorted a donor organ and doctors to a child at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

They said there was only about two hours to get there and traffic had stopped.

Some of these first responders gave firsthand accounts of the treacherous trip.

CVG firefighters said they were asked to take the doctors and donors to the children’s hospital after their flight was diverted.

They said it was a bumpy, snowy ride.

“It helps or is gratifying to help someone, in this case, and it was a team effort,” said Lt. Brian Norris of the Cincinnati Police Department.

In the middle of a blizzard, these first responders showed diligence and care, and some of it was caught on the dashcam.

“My thought was how are we going to get this organ through this traffic jam?” Cincinnati Police Spc. Joe Stevens said.

First responders worked together to bring a number of donor lungs to the children’s hospital for a boy.

“The traffic was terrible the entire trip. I was just trying to squeeze between the cars,” said CVG Firefighter and EMT Jason Baumann.

He drove a CVG pickup truck from the airport with three doctors and the lungs on board.

Your flight was diverted from Lunken Airport due to the snow.

Baumann said they only had two hours to get to the hospital.

“We spent most of the time driving on 75 in about 10 inches of snow on our shoulders,” said Baumann.

He said they were stuck on Hopple Street.

At that point, Norris and the Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit came to help.

“It was messy to say the least,” he said.

Stevens knew someone had given this gift of life and a second chance selflessly.

“This was really an important event as there is no way to go wrong. We had to take this vehicle to the hospital with the doctor and the organ,” said Stevens.

He helped them wiggle through the traffic paralyzed by rainfall.

“It was a weight off my shoulders,” said Baumann.

Together they weathered a perfect storm and brought the doctors and donor lungs right to the doorstep.

“I feel very good that I was just a little involved to help a family, maybe have a better life,” said Stevens.

Baumann said the entire trip took more than an hour.

Impressive, in the middle of the storm, they said they managed to do it without having direct communication with each other.

There is no official word about how the boy is doing.

The Cincinnati Children’s Hospital said it couldn’t discuss details of patient care.

A spokeswoman released a statement saying, “Cincinnati Children’s is grateful and grateful to the Cincinnati Police Department, the CVG Fire Department, and the pilots who have helped in difficult circumstances.”
