Kudos To Rescuers

Hats off and kudos to the Transylvania Rescue team, EMS and North Transylvania Fire Depart-ment for giving me a leg up.

On Sunday, March 21, they responded to an emergency on Baynard Road. While mowing my lawn, I ascended up an incline when suddenly the front wheel caught my fence, throwing me off the back while the mower continued to climb, eventually falling back onto me. I managed to push it off of me, but the blade deck came down on me, severely cutting my leg and fracturing both bones.

The actions of these fine individuals saved my leg from amputation, for which I’m eternally grateful. They’re the very best in their profession; we’re lucky to have them.
