- A 23-month-old needed to travel 80 miles for an emergency procedure
- The Pennsylvania National Guard and state troopers helped escort the child
The child needed to get from Lehigh Valley Hospital-Pocono in East Stroudsburg to Geisinger Children's Hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania State Police said.
That's an 80-mile journey -- made incredibly treacherous by Tuesday's storm that hurled dangerous winds and dumped 20 inches of snow in the state
But fear not -- "The snow doesn't stop us!" Pennsylvania State Police posted on Facebook.
So state troopers, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Pennsylvania National Guard joined forces to escort the child, who was not identified, for the "emergency medical procedure."
"PennDOT led the way with a plow train. State police went with the group to make sure they were safe," Gov. Tom Wolf said, according to CNN affiliate WPVI
"The National Guard followed up to make sure that if anything happened they could help. And the local emergency responders and healthcare practitioners made sure the baby was safe while they made that trip."
After a long, slow journey through the snow storm, "the team effort ensured everyone arrived safely," state police said.
