Brain surgery.

An Alabama neurosurgeon was at Brookwood Medical Center when he was needed six miles away for emergency brain surgery at Trinity Medical Center.

Dr. Zenko Hrynkiw set off in his car but a rare snowstorm locked down traffic and he didn’t get farther than a few blocks.

Dressed in his hospital scrubs, the 62-year-old got out of his car and walked the rest of the trip in freezing temperatures.

“He had a 90 percent chance of death,” Hrynkiw said of the patient who had gone unconscious.

Hrynkim said that if the patient did not have surgery he would have died, “and that’s not going to happen on my shift.”
