Stories of Kindness from Around the World

'When Called To Act, I'm All In"

--by LiliAB, posted Jun 18, 2017
Dr. Bazette, the father of one of my past students, is a trauma surgeon at our local hospital. His shift had ended when on his way back up the highway he came across a horrific scene. Two trucks stuck together. The second one hinged under the severed air brakes of the first. The driver immobilized and alive, his legs pinned inside his cab.

The local firefighters valiantly, over an hour's time manage to cut away the cab of the second truck, and lift the rear of the first truck, thereby gaining access to the driver. For the entire time, Dr. Bazette is actively on duty, supporting and comforting the stunned driver. After he is freed his body collapses, and Dr. Bazette springs into action.

In the Life Flight ambulance Dr. Bazette performs CPR on the young man for over 20 minutes, and revives him in preparation for the quick journey back to the local hospital that Dr. Bazette had just finished his shift earlier in the eve.

In the next hour,Dr. Bazette assists the team of trauma surgeons in stabilizing the driver of the second truck, thereby saving his life.

Melanie Bazette, his older of the three girls, shared this in her article in our district newsletter. Dr. Bazette's response to the accolades he is receiving. "When called to act, I'm all in ".
