The duties of a nurse are never really over even when their shift is, they are always on the frontline when it comes to saving lives.
A nurse in Nebraska who was on the way to her daughter’s wedding stopped on the way to save a life and is being hailed a ‘hero’ for doing that.
Jodi Damrow was going to attend daughter Hailey’s ceremony when she saw a two-car pileup about a mile from her home near the Nebraska-Kansas border.
“My mom was on her way to my wedding when she witnessed a terrible accident,” Hailey Krull said in a Facebook post. “Being an ER nurse of 35+ years, she sprang into action and helped save a life.”
Damrow kept a women’s airway open while they waited for paramedics to arrive, she also called a life-flight helicopter to the scene, she did all this while dressed in her long gown for the wedding.
“People were talking about the lady wearing gloves and a pretty dress who was saving lives,” Krull’s post said. “Mom said she was just really careful not to get blood on her dress as she knew she had to walk me down the aisle later.”
Damrow arrived just 10 minutes before the wedding was supposed to start. “I’m sorry I’m late. I had to save a life,” she told Hailey. “Only my mom, Nurse Jodi,” Hailey said.
