Vanderbilt LifeFlight Crew Meets Child Saved

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Vanderbilt's LifeFlight celebrates three decades of service this year, helping save lives in our community. FOX 17 This Morning's Erin Como shares the story of one local little boy who was saved after a serious car accident. 


"We were rear-ended by another vehicle and my son was ejected from the car." Father Josh Carney recalls the day that changed his son's life. Three-year-Old Mason Carney's road to recovery has been a long one since the February accident, one which included a metal halo being bolted to his little head. LifeFlight nurses who lifted off from Smyrna responded to the accident and found Mason on his side, still in his car seat nearly 30 feet away from the car. 


The seat belt restraint had been severed during the accident, sending Mason flying onto Highway 231. When LifeFlight medics looked at the car they couldn't believe their eyes. There was barely anything left of the car Mason and his father were driving. They transported Mason to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital after putting in a breathing tube and supporting his fragile body. 



Many times, that is where the story ends for first-responders. They do their part and rarely ever get to know the outcome of the people they help. But Mason's father surprised Life Flight responders Kirk Krokosky, Kathy Nippers and Patrick Miller with a visit from Mason. Although he still has a way to go in the healing process, Mason was able to thank these life-savers.


"You can't thank somebody enough" says dad Josh Carney. The meeting was also special for the crew. "To see him waving at us, that's something special."
