Providence Health patient reunites with doctor, EMTs who saved his life
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — A patient of Providence Health in Columbia reunited Wednesday with the people who saved his life.
In March, John Johnson had a ruptured hernia and lost consciousness at home. When he didn’t show up at work, police who were called for a welfare check found him at home.
Ultimately, first-responders were able to keep him alive so doctors could essentially put him back together.
Johnson credits quick thinking and care from a Providence Health doctor and a Richland County EMS crew.
Each of those involved were honored with their own day in the city of Columbia.
Johnson is fully recovered.
