Alabama NewsCenter — UAB care team leads patient through life-changing internal decapitation

Christy Bullock was taking a motorcycle ride with her father in fall 2021 near Mount Cheaha in east Alabama. It was a ride that would forever change her life.

A tricky turn around a curve did not go as planned, and she hit a guardrail. The guardrail stopped her body but – with the weight of her helmet – her head kept moving forward. After that, the scene faded around her.

The paramedics who responded to the call were not just any paramedics — they were Bullock’s co-workers. Bullock had been a paramedic for 11 years, and her co-workers and friends were first on the scene to treat her. Her husband was also a paramedic and was originally scheduled to work that day but, thankfully, did not.
