After more than a month in the hospital, Timmy Brodigan met the first responders who treated him after the Amtrak derailment.
“I’m feeling thankful,” Timmy said as he waited for them to arrive. “I get to meet the people who saved my life.”
On December 18th, the 16-year-old was on Amtrak 501 on his way to see cousins in Oregon when the train derailed near DuPont, Wash. He woke up in the hospital with a broken neck, fractured ribs, a bruised lung and several other injuries.
