In the wrong place at the right time

On July 28, 2016, Staff Sgt. Christopher Chaves, 31st Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter, was returning from the Venice airport when an accident unfolded right in front of him. Chaves applied a tourniquet and splint the driver’s leg on scene. The truck driver, Paul Enrico Gheorghe, a resident of Roveredo in Piano, Italy, is still recovering at home with his leg intact due to Chaves’ efforts.
