Sometimes a medical emergency isn’t caused by a collision or traumatic incident, but by simply standing in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Shaylee Belke was with her father, Brad, doing chores on their family farm when she was severely injured. As Brad was feeding cattle, he was startled by a loud smacking sound. He turned to see his daughter launching through the air after being kicked by one of their horses.
Brad, who is a registered nurse, dropped his feed and ran over to Shaylee. He saw her condition was serious and decided to not wait for an ambulance. He placed Shaylee in his truck and headed to the nearest hospital, calling 911 as he drove. Once he arrived, the girl was placed into an ambulance and taken to the next closest town, which had a slightly larger hospital.
