On Tuesday morning, a man with a traumatic brain injury showed up at a hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. But the only available brain surgeon was 61-year-old Zenko Hrynkiw, and he was at a different hospital six miles away. (His last name's pronounced 'her-INK-ooh'.)
So Zenko got in his car and tried to drive over . . . but that massive SNOWSTORM had locked up traffic, and he only made it a few blocks.
Meanwhile, hospital staff were scrambling to keep the guy alive. And they were having trouble getting through to Zenko's cell, because his reception was cutting in and out. When they finally did get through, he told a nurse, "I'm walking."
Then he abandoned his car, and started HOOFING IT. A nurse called the cops, so they could give him a ride, but they couldn't find him. And after a couple hours passed, the hospital staff started worrying he wouldn't show.
But Zenko is a verifiable BADASS. Because after walking SIX MILES through a SNOWSTORM, he finally showed up at the hospital and rushed into surgery.
According to one of the nurses, the patient probably would have DIED if Zenko hadn't shown up. But the surgery was a success, and the guy is currently recovering. (Montgomery Advertiser / AL.com)
