The bones in one of his legs from the knee down were shattered entirely, severing the critical arteries that send blood to the calf and foot. All of his toes on both feet were also broken. Sessin was losing a lot of blood – and quickly.
Still conscious, Sessin said that’s when the good Samaritan came to his aid.
“It was a bystander. That’s what we’re assuming. And if it’s not a bystander, it’s an officer or a fireman,” said Jenny Sessin, Tony’s wife of 38 years. “Someone put a tourniquet on my husband’s leg, and it saved his life. I don’t care how you look at it. He’s alive. He might not have a leg in the end, but he’s here, and he’s alive. And we want to thank you personally from the bottom of our hearts. Please come forward so we can thank you.”
The deployment of the tourniquet helped slow the bleeding, buying precious time to get Sessin to the trauma center. Jenny Sessin said Tony believes it was a bystander who used the tourniquet because both police and fire officials said the tourniquet was already in place when they arrived.
