EMS Great Save Celebration

First responders who were first on the scene to aid 17-year-old Jackson Hill following a severe motorcycle accident on Highway 13 near Warrensburg, Mo., were reunited with Jackson and his family. On June 13, ambulances from Warrensburg responded to the accident which left Jackson without a pulse or blood pressure. In addition, the teen lost his right leg below the knee at the scene. Life Flight was called to transfer him to Research Medical Center’s Level I Trauma Center where he spent three weeks in the Intensive Care Unit and underwent multiple surgeries. Jackson has remained in the hospital, working on his recovery.
