NuHealth’s state-of-the-art Emergency Department has a staff of dedicated physicians, nurses and other medical specialists who understand that the day you arrive at the ER is likely to be one of the worst days of your life.
Alexie Schramm, 34 of Queens, was rushed to NuHealth’s Emergency Department after his Lexus SUV slammed into the Meadowbrook Parkway bridge on the Southern State Parkways in North Merrick on Friday, November 4th around 11:30am. He was trapped inside the vehicle when it caught fire, (LIHerald).
“A state trooper and a highway worker reportedly put out the blaze with a fire extinguisher. North Merrick volunteer firefighters were at the crash site in minutes,” reports the LI Herald. The volunteer firefighters along with rescue workers from the Nassau County Police Department and Emergency Service Unit, “needed a half-hour” to remove Schramm from the car (LIHerald).
After being rushed to NuHealth’s Emergency Department, he was listed in critical condition. Schramm sustained “severe injuries to his face, as well as broken legs and internal injuries,” reported Newsday.
“We can’t figure out why he went off the road,” said State Tropper Wallace Gray to Newsday.
Shelley Lotenberg, Hospital spokeswoman, told reporters that Schramm was “in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition,” (Newsday).
