Cop drives surgeon, donated liver to Thomas Jefferson Hospital after crash

When a liver being transported to a hospital for a transplant surgery is in a car that crashes, a police officer steps in to save the day.

A police officer responding to a crash wound up driving a surgeon, an assistant and a donated liver to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital for an emergency transplant.

East Cocalico Township police Sgt. Darrick Keppley says he came upon a disabled vehicle Saturday afternoon that had skidded off the icy road.

The team was transporting a liver from York to Jefferson, where a patient already was in the operating room.

Keppley says he offered to help. The doctor and assistant piled into his vehicle, he switched on his lights and sirens and navigated the snowy 60 miles east to Philadelphia.
