    Brain surgeon walks six miles in Alabama snow storm to perform life-saving surgery R

    I thought this was an interesting read.

    A brain surgeon walked six miles through a snowstorm in Alabama on Tuesday to perform life-saving surgery.
    Dr Zenko Hrynkiw was at Brookwood Medical Center in Tuesday morning when he was needed for emergency brain surgery miles away at Trinity Medical Center.
    The problem was the sudden snowstorm had locked down traffic, and the neurosurgeon didn't get farther than a few blocks by vehicle.
    'The cell service was bad so we were fading in and out,' said Steve Davis, charge nurse in the neuro intensive care unit at Trinity. 'At one point, I heard him say, "I'm walking."'
    Davis had alerted authorities, and they were looking for him. There were supposed sightings, but no one could find him.

    "Dr Hrynkiw arrived at the hospital and immediately went into surgery"

    How was he not shaking so bad he cut something wrong?

    There is a 5 minute interview with Dr Hrynkiw at NPR.

    That is awesome How many people or doctors would walk 6-8 miles on ice for a surgery that was some exercise.

    I would have thought he would be shivering when he got there, but all that walking probably kept him warm.

    I think this says more about the state of laziness in America than anything else.

    6 miles (oooooooo, so far!) is a 2 hour walk, at worst, for a slow walker.
