The hospital used my Road ID!

by ROAD iD Staff May 18, 2021

This year, I was participating in the Nike Human Race in Chicago, Illinois.  Shortly after passing the five mile mark of this 10k race, I collapsed & passed out.  I was transported quickly to a local hospital via ambulance.  I was unconscious, but the nurse in the emergency room saw my Road ID around my wrist.  My Road ID enabled the hospital to immediately contact my family at home and those that were waiting for me at the finish line.  Within the hour, my family was able join me at the hospital.

Thank you all for such a worthwhile piece of gear.  I never leave home without it.  My Road ID is with me all the time - no matter where I may be going (work, church, etc.).

I am often asked about my Wrist ID by others, and I always tell them to give Road ID a call.  I would like to thank all of the personnel associated with Road ID, for the most practical and necessary item I have ever owned.  Thank you once again.

Update: It was later determined, after three days of hospitalization, that there was an existing heart abnormality that needed attention.
