Pregnant woman struck by car

Stephanie and baby Ethan were given a 1% chance of survival after sustaining life threatening injuries due to an out of control driver. Our daughter was uncomfortable driving at this point in her pregnancy and decided to ride the bus. She would not have been at this location otherwise. A combat medic and his wife were lost in that area and happened to witness the crash. He sprang into action. Unable to find a pulse, he performed CPR until EMS arrived while another man prayed over her. She flatlined in the trauma bay resulting in an emergency C-section ultimately saving the baby's life. Stephanie's heart was literally in the surgeon's hand. While he repaired her heart and lung, the rest of the team used emergency exploratory surgery to rule out further damage. It is a miracle that they are still with us. It will take some time to heal from her injuries and the extent of Ethan's neurological deficits are unknown as he will be on medication to control his seizures for at least 1 year. We will manage any funds raised in a trust for their medical bills and future needs. Thank you all for your generosity, prayers and well wishes. May God bless
