A nurse who bravely rescued an injured driver on a national highway in March was seen again rushing to an accident scene near the hospital she works to administer first aid to an injured woman in a traffic accident that involved a motorcycle and a truck on Thursday.
The accident happened around 10:40 a.m. on the highway in front of the Tainan Hospital of the Ministry of Health and Welfare. A 73-year-old woman surnamed Lee was lying on the ground and both of her legs were bleeding.
Shortly after the accident happened, a passerby went into the hospital to seek help. On-duty head nurse Lai Yu-ting responded to the scene immediately. Hospital nurse Chu Yi-ching, who was on vacation but took the time to sort data in the office, rushed afterward to the scene upon learning what happened. Together both nurses examined Lee’s injuries and administered first aid before helping move her into an ambulance.
The scene of the two nurses working together to help the woman was recorded by passersby, who praised them for their warm hearts and compassion. [FULL STORY]
