Gore's Medical Miracle
Gore is already back
to playing and having
Gore Otteson, age two, slipped out the door of his family's Gunnison vacation cabin while his mother was tending to her other children. As soon as his mother, Amy, realized he was gone, she and 20 other family members in nearby cabins began searching for Gore. Twenty minutes passed before her cousin spotted Gore's body trapped under a log in a fast-flowing irrigation ditch 350 feet from the cabin.
Amy's father, a retired orthopedic surgeon and her two cousins, who are nurses, began performing CPR on Gore. Once paramedics arrived, they took him to Gunnison Valley Hospital; he was then airlifted to Children's Hospital Colorado where doctors gave him less than 1% chance of survival. Upon his arrival at Children's, Gore's heart had ceased to beat for nearly an hour.
Today, Gore is doing great and is considered a medical miracle. Watch his parents talking about this medical miracle on the TODAY show and learn how the cold waters of Colorado may have saved his life.
