VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) — A northwestern Indiana man badly injured in a 2007 crash has finally gotten closure by meeting the flight nurse who helped save his life.
Elliott Rauch was badly injured when he crashed into a tree while driving to the beach in Porter County. The then-17-year-old suffered a closed head injury and broken bones, and his father moved him from the old Porter Hospital in Valparaiso to Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill.
He was transferred by the University of Chicago Aeromedical Network. Last week, he met former flight nurse Kelley Holdren to express his thanks.
Holdren tells the Post-Tribune it's rare to meet patients after they've been transported by helicopter.
Rauch is still dealing with the effects of the crash but is happy to have met Holdren.
