VIDEO: Tampa Police Officers Help Transplant Patient
A man who spent 12 years on the transplant list faced many speed bumps on his was to his transplant appointment. Luckily, police helped him get to the hospital on time, reports WTSP-TV.
On March 12, around 5:30 am Robert Barbour was on his way from Bradenton to Tampa General Hospital to undergo a kidney transplant. On the way he got a flat tire and called 911 because he only had a few minutes to be there by his scheduled time of 6 am.
Barbour thanks Tampa police officers Jason DeRocco and George Boyd for making a quick decision when Barbour needed it most.
Realizing the urgency for Barbour, with lights and sirens blaring, Officers DeRocco and Boyd took Barbour to Tampa General Hospital in the back of their cruiser with Barbour smiling the entire way.

I couldn't be more proud of the officers from my hometown than I am today. Great job DeRocco and Boyd and thanks to the supervisors who allowed them the leeway to do the right thing. May God bless you all.
