A paramedic and pediatrician who saved each other’s lives participated in a charity event Sunday that raised money for life-saving cancer research.
KTLA reports that paramedic Chris Trokey was one of the people who rescued pediatrician Dr. Michael Shannon from a car accident on March 29, 2011. Trokey did not realize until he got to the hospital that he was the same Michael Shannon who, 30 years prior, had worked round the clock to nurse him back to health after he was born prematurely, weighing just over three pounds.
Trokey told KTLA that Shannon is now his son’s pediatrician.
According to the news station, Shannon and Trokey shaved their heads at a fundraiser for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
