Air St. Luke's Transports Megan After an Injury at her Ranch

January 12, 2013
When you raise beef cattle, you have to put up with a lot of bull. Literally. Megan Myers and her husband Eric had to separate five big ones who had been fighting in their corral. As they were moving the bulls to a second corral, two of them started fighting again, and Eric and Megan couldn't secure the gate in time. The bulls slammed through the gate, sending it flying, knocking Megan to the ground, and also injuring Eric.

Megan, a 28-year veteran EMT with the Buhl Quick Response Unit, was rendered unconscious but remembers hearing the voices of her fellow EMTs as they treated her injuries. The Air St. Luke's helicopter landed in her pasture and whisked her off to Twin Falls, where she spent three days in the hospital with a cracked pelvis, head injuries, and severe blunt trauma. Megan and Eric are pictured here with their children, Keegan and Morgan.
