Maj. Jeremy Kilburn

On July 5, 2012 Maj. (Dr.) Jeremy Kilburn, 99th Medical Operations Squadron Cardio/Pulmonary Flight commander and Intensive Care Unit director suffered a broken leg while hiking in the mountains of Northern California and required immediate medical evacuation. The California Highway Patrol dispatched a helicopter team to rescue Kilburn from the remote area.
After landing, paramedic Tony Stanley exited the helicopter and was struck by its rotor blade seriously injuring him.
Despite his broken leg, Kilburn with the help of a friend made it more than 50 yards to provide emergency critical care to the injured paramedic. He administered oxygen and inserted a breathing tube into the injured paramedic’s
throat, which ultimately saved his life.
Stanley was put on a stretcher, loaded on to the helicopter and taken to the hospital.

Staff Sgt. OK Hubble

By 99th Air Base Wing Public Affairs

On May 14, 2012, Staff Sgt. Ok Hubble, 99th Ground Combat Training Squadron, responded to a medical emergency on a flight from Florida to Colorado as the only member with basic first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.

An hour after take-off, a United Airlines flight attendant asked that any passenger with medical training to assist with a medical emergency.

As a certified pre-hospital trauma life support technician, Hubble made his way to the front of the aircraft and assessed the situation identifying an unconscious female, in her mid-60s, collapsed in the narrow aisle.

Hubble examined the woman and identified a two-inch cut above the victim’s right eye surrounded by a bruise. He applied direct pressure to the cut when the victim began to regain consciousness, and then he began to assess the victim’s mental status to determine the extent of the traumatic head injury.

The Denver Emergency Medical Services took custody of the patient, and Hubble relayed all pertinent medical information to medical technicians.
