Bradley County (WRCB) - In honor of National EMS Week Erlanger honored Bradley County paramedics and Erlanger Life Force with the Star of Life award.
The groups were recognized for their response to a motorcycle crash last October.
Shawn Hall had been hit by a car and had lost a leg, hip and pelvis when paramedics arrived on the scene. Hall says many people didn't expect him to live, but the paramedics and Life Force wouldn't give up on him. "The severity of my accident, they said no one ever makes it. So I was just one in a few, one-in-a-billion. So by the grace of God, I'm here and I think them for that."
When he arrived at Erlanger, doctors only gave Hall 48-hours to live. But, he survived. He's undergone 42-hours of surgery.
Four people were killed and four others injured in a mass shooting at a Waffle House in Antioch early Sunday. The suspect is still on the run.More
