Two paramedics in Missouri braved cold temperatures and the possibility of injury to self in order to get a patient to a hospital, physically walking the patient’s gurney up an icy hill when the Ambulance simply couldn’t make the climb.

Maryland Heights Fire Rescue Paramedics Jon Stillpass and Shaylor Taetz responded to a bus accident and were required to transport a patient to a nearby hospital.

Upon arriving at the hospital, the paramedics found that the ambulance couldn’t get up the hill, so they strapped on ice cleats and made the 1-mile trip themselves.

According to CNN, the patient, a female bus driver, made it to the hospital and was evaluated.
