A typical July 4th parade in a small Utah town with floats, marching bands, horses, and old vehicles. In the back of the parade, Mayor Monnett of Spring City, Utah was riding in a vintage horse & buggy representing Spring City. Everything seemed normal until Mayor Monnett had an asthma attack and was rushed to Intermountain Sanpete Valley Hospital by Horse and Buggy. As Mayor Monnett hung on for dear life, the hospital staff from many departments rushed to action to help save Mayor Monnett's life, ultimately transferring him by Life Flight to Utah Valley Hospital in Provo for specialized care.
Filmed as a true-to-life reenactment with the actual people and locations involved, this documentary film shoot was a poignant, touching experience for us to be a part of; to witness the patient, his family, and the hospital staff recreate the gravity and emotions of the situation was amazing to watch. Having been practically dead during the whole ordeal, Mayor Monnett experience it consciously for the first time and was eternally grateful because of it.
