EMTs, doctors thanked
On the evening of Dec. 11, our family experienced what could have been a terrible tragedy. Thanks to the quick response and skill of the EMTs on the scene, this tragedy was averted.

Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Giulia Tortora, Mikel Kuhn, Torrie Morrison and the ER staff at South Peninsula Hospital, especially those who stayed overtime. Thanks to all your efforts, our 2-week-old son is still with us.

A special thank you goes out to Grandpa Jeff, whose quick action and knowledge saved our son's life. To all of our family and friends, and a few strangers, your support and prayers mean more than you know. Thank you all very much.

Jason, Catherine, Jullianna and Gabriel Hanenbarger
