A Pennsylvania paramedic and firefighter were recognized last week for their heroic work to save the life of a truck driver who had crashed on the Pennsylvania Turnpike last year. Trapped in the cab, the driver was bleeding heavily from his foot being impaled by a guardrail that penetrated the cab. The two rescuers worked together to apply a SOF® Tourniquet to the driver’s leg… He ultimately needed a partial amputation to be freed from the wreckage. “…These two individuals made the initial and most critical lifesaving actions and decisions that helped this call remain a rescue versus a recovery.” The driver was out of the hospital within a week and healed enough for a prosthetic several months later. More details can be viewed here.
