EMTs Take Man To Hospital, Come Back To Finish His Yard Work
Their patient broke his hip, so they knew he wasn't going to be able to mow his lawn anytime soon.
Harold Storelee likes to keep his yard tidy.
When he was out mowing his front lawn last week in Rochester, WA, he fell and broke his hip. Since he was out of view of anyone passing by, Storelee laid in his yard for four hours until a family member came home.
When a trio of EMTs from the West Thurston Fire Department arrived on the scene, they rushed Storelee to a nearby hospital. His family arrived shortly after to be by his side.
The EMTs returned to work and spent their day tending to car accident victims and other emergencies. But at the end of the day, they returned to Storelee's house and finished cutting the grass.
Storlee's grandson later shared the story with a few photos in a Twitter post.
