Round-the-Clock Healing

One night, as they were on their way to a local theme park, Danielle Sanon, a Florida Hospital Tampa ED nurse, and her brother drove past a car accident and immediately jumped into action to save lives.

“The driver was trapped in the car; we couldn’t get the car open and his blood pressure was 70 over 30,” Danielle explains.

The woman in the passenger side had crawled out of a window, so Danielle’s brother took care of her while she stabilized the man still trapped in the vehicle.

When Hillsborough County Fire Rescue arrived, they had to use the Jaws of Life to get the man out of the car. Danielle said this is the first time she’s saved a life “off the clock.” It was an amazing example of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ outside of her hospital’s walls.
