Vanderbilt calls him a miracle....
That’s the short version of a nerve-wracking series of events that happened recently in Woodbury.
Onteya, after receiving word of his dire condition, was rushing to Stones River Hospital and was pulled over by a police officer.
“All I told him it was an emergency and he jumped back in his car and led me to the hospital,” she said.
“I don’t know any of these people’s names, but I have to thank them for all they did.”
The miracle work continued at Vanderbilt Hospital.
“Everything they did saved his life and God intervened to make sure he had no permanent damage,” Onteya said.
It was the people of Cannon County, the nurses, the paramedics, the police that made the difference and saved his life.
Instead of asking a million questions or dodging responsibility, those emergency workers just jumped in and did what needed to be done to save that young man’s life.
Nor will you see them rushing forward to take credit for their quick, thoughtful action.
Wham...and it was done and another life was saved.
The above case of emergency personnel rushing to save a young man’s life is one example of how this community works. But many smaller “kindnesses” are manifest as well. The other day, I had lunch at a Woodbury restaurant and being a klutz I managed to drop two dollars on the floor. Most folks would have kept those couple of bucks without saying anything, but not in Woodbury. The finder searched me down to return those two rumpled up bills.
That’s Woodbury for you.
