Pat Moon saves a life

A few days back I posted about our friend Pat Moon who is running the Iditarod in Alaska. Pat has had a tough run during the race and had to scratch out on Sunday when the seven dogs he was down to could go no further. Pat's story took a strange turn this morning as he was waiting in the town of Ruby and was called to something greater. A local child was riding his sled and crashed into a parked snow machine. Pat put his first aid skills to use and "stopped the bleeding and cleaned the cut, which helped keep the boy's face together" according to KTUU Channel 2.

Way to go Pat.
