Ranger Medics Make Unbelievable Battlefield Save

After being shot four times in Afghanistan, US Army Ranger Sgt. Oliver Campbell has one of the most unbelievable stories of survival thanks to his Ranger Medics. His lung started to collapse, the litter that was meant to carry him broke, and his heart stopped on one of his medical flights. What started to look like a worst case scenario, turned out to be a story of a highly trained team that refused to let him die. Watch the video below to hear the story as told by General Daniel B. Allyn, you will not be disappointed.

Campbell was hit on a mission linking his Ranger team with Afghan special operations soldiers. They were attacked with small arms and with something that exploded, causing shrapnel to splinter in a compound they visited, according to the Ranger battalion.
Campbell also was hurt around his eyes, where shrapnel struck, his mother said.He serves in a unit that has been deploying to Afghanistan more or less continuously since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001.
