OSF Children's Hospital Saves Young Teen's Life

It was just like any other day. We were at an uncle’s house for a cookout for Mother’s Day. Our twin girls, Khloe and Zoey, were having fun and left on an ATV with friends. I got a call shortly after that there had been an accident down the road. My brother and I hopped in the car. When we pulled up, I saw Khloe laying in the ditch and Zoey holding her sister’s neck straight, keeping her airway open. I used to be an EMT, so I’d always told the girls what to do if they came upon an accident. My brother said I let out a horrible scream. I honestly thought Khloe was dead. I saw her lying there and I thought she was gone. I was afraid to get closer. But, I also knew I was the only one who could help her if she was alive. Zoey was in shock and hurt herself. I sent her away so she wouldn’t see everything. I did a sternal rub on Khloe and she responded, so I started assessing her injuries. I knew she had a traumatic brain injury because there was spinal fluid coming out of her eyes, nose and ears. I also found broken bones in her face and she was bleeding. I knew it was bad. Life flight was called in and Khloe was flown to Children’s Hospital. I made the difficult decision to go with Zoey in an ambulance to another hospital. I just kept thinking I needed to be there for her. I didn’t know if Khloe was going to live. I had to make sure one of girls was okay. My husband drove to Peoria to be with Khloe.
