The California Highway Patrol is extremely grateful for the swift actions of these heroes. Thanks to the assistance they provided, Tony is alive today
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
In an unfortunate series of events earlier this month, California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer Tony Stanley suffered life-threatening injuries while performing a medevac rescue in the Shasta Trinity Forest. The CHP recently released a thank you to all of those who helped ensure the safety of the officers and hikers involved.
The incident occurred when Officer Stanley was struck by the CHP helicopter’s rotor blade while attempting to provide emergency aid to an injured hiker. Coincidentally, the injured hiker was a U.S. Air Force Critical Care Pulmonologist and was able to fight through his own pain to help provide emergency assistance for the officer.
Joe Farrow, CHP Commissioner, issued a thank you to the hiker, as well as the officers who accompanied Officer Stanley in the medevac rescue.
“The California Highway Patrol is extremely grateful for the swift actions of these heroes. Thanks to the assistance they provided, Tony is alive today. I cannot even imagine the pain Dr. Kilburn was in, unable to walk, when he rolled down the hill to the location of our injured officer. Without regard to his own injuries and pain, Dr. Kilburn performed critical life-saving steps, ultimately saving the life of our officer,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow.
