Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services said one of their off-duty medics and helicopter pilot Special Operations Captain Steve Bush answered a desperate call from Mothers' Milk Bank in Austin Friday evening.
Bush, owner of Lone Star Helicopters LLC., flew from Austin around 5:30 p.m. Friday to deliver eight cases of mother's milk to four hospitals in the Houston area, ATCEMS said.
The hospitals had reached out to Mother's Milk Bank in Austin and said they were in dire need of milk, which could not be delivered by the normal methods. Bush, along with Buena Vista Aviation, made the important deliveries to UTMB at Galveston, Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, LBJ General Hospital and Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital.
Bush returned to Austin around 11:30 p.m., ATCEMS said.
