A surgeon stuck in traffic commandeered a child’s bike so she could get to the operating room.
Early Wednesday morning, a serious traffic accident involving a tanker truck carrying inflammable material forced police to close I-10 in the heart of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Cancer surgeon Catherine Baucom had to get to the operating room, so she stopped at a friend’s house and asked to borrow a bike. The six foot tall Baucom hopped on the bike of the friend’s seven-year-old daughter along with a princess helmet and biked to her appointment at the BRASS Surgery Center near Our Lady of the Lake Medical Center just blocks from the Interstate traffic jam.
