Richmond, Va., EMS Agencies Help Child with Cancer

Thursday, November 29, 2012


RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -EMS agencies are working a different kind of emergency. It's not uncommon for a child with a terminal illness to be granted a wish. Some want a trip to Disney; others ask to meet a famous person. One Southwest Virginia boy has an unusual request and it's being fulfilled by ambulance crews in our area.

Every day EMS workers respond to 911 calls. Now, they're responding to the call of that one little boy. He has a similar emergency but needs a different kind of help.

It started out with a short email from Virginia State Police.
