Miracles do still happen, and no, after more than twenty years in Emergency Medical Services don’t come to me and say that it was all the Doctors, Nurses, and Technicians.
Irrespective of what you see on television the truth of the matter is that neurological saves are a rare event. Much less two at the same time. Merry Christmas, and many more to follow thanks to a dedicated resuscitation team, and some help from above!
DENVER – Mike Hermanstorfer was clutching his pregnant wife’s hand when her life slipped away in a Colorado hospital on Christmas Eve, and then he cradled his newborn son’s limp body seconds after a medical team delivered the baby by Cesarean section.
Minutes later he saw his son come to life in his arms under the feverish attention of doctors, and soon he learned his wife had inexplicably come back to life.
“My legs went out from underneath me,” Hermanstorfer said Tuesday. “I had everything in the world taken from me, and in an hour and a half I had everything given to me.”
