Hurricane Sandy vs. NICU

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

At New York University Tisch Hospital, the backup generator failed, as the storm called Hurricane Sandy hit.

This lower Manhattan hospital was quickly lined outside with ambulances, transporting 200 patients to other facilities.

Without power, patients were manually carried down several flights of stairs.

The twenty or more NICU babies were carefully carried down nine flights of stairs while simultaneously and manually being provided respiration by NICU nurses through the power outtage.

These diligent NICU nurses forged through the onslaught of the gusty storm.  While shielding these precious children through the ferocity of the violent storm, they simultaneously provided the delicate and life saving respiration each baby needed.

They are heroes.
