Back on July 18, an Idaho man was hit head-on by a car on Highway 12 in Yakima. The woman who hit him died, but he is alive today because of a crew of Yakima firefighters.
72-year-old Robert Hoss and his wife Diana know how lucky he is to be alive, so they wanted to say thank you to the men who saved his life.
On Thursday morning, both of them went to Station #95 in Yakima with 'Thank You' balloons and a card.
Hoss, a traveling pharmacist, was on his way home to spend time with his family when he was hit head-on. The crash left him with four spinal fractures, a brain bleed, two broken collar bones, 16 broken ribs, and a broken breast plate.
Despite all that trauma, firefighters were able to get him into the ambulance without damaging his spinal cord.
