The emergency room is equipped to handle unpredictable medical situations and often very traumatic. This is the case of a 22-year-old woman who reached the level I trauma room when she suffered an accident at LaGuardia Airport, NYC where she used to work.

The woman is aided by paramedics at the scene, but on the way to the hospital, her condition deteriorates. She is intubated and resuscitated, but she does not respond. At the hospital, the emergency team is prepared for the situation, waiting for her arrival. She finally reaches the trauma room fighting for her life in a very critical situation.

Her young body vulnerable and unconscious, with little chance of survival is connected to the monitors and ventilator, while listening to the version of the paramedics.
