Saving lives, one flight at a time

After the injured first officer stumbled out of the Cessna Citation that crash-landed at Birmingham [England] Airport last November, he explained to the first firefighter on the scene that the wreckage contained a donated organ, according to BBC News. Firefighters helped the seriously injured pilot and then recovered the organ, a well-insulated liver that was on its way to nearby Queen Elizabeth Hospital. A police motorcycle officer took the liver there, and the transplant was successfully carried out.
