Patients reunite with those who saved them


More than 20 trauma survivors met the first responders and doctors from the Harris County Hospital District who helped them. The victims include a girl who accidentally pierced her heart with a pencil at school and an HPD officer shot in the face and a woman crushed by a truck.

"When they released me, I couldn't speak. I couldn't walk, I couldn't move my arms," trauma survivor Juanita Arreola said. "I had metal in most of parts of my body; they fixed me up; they save my life."

Arreola, decide to show her gratitude by volunteering with the hospital district.
