Lindsey Chisholm is being called a superhero after she made an 8-mile hike through a blizzard so she could operate on a patient with colon cancer.
Scotland had been in the middle of red alert weather conditions and Lindsey realized she could not use her car to get to the Hospital for the surgery the next day. So with snow poles in hand, she woke up early the next morning and walked for 3 hours through the snow.
“I didn’t think it was big deal,” Chisholm told BBC. “I had the right equipment, I knew there was no avalanche risk, I was not going to get lost, there were places I could stop on the way if the weather did become absolutely terrible so I just didn’t think anything of it.”
