Immigrant Whiz Saves Boy on a Plane

Spread the love

Donald Trump and others of his ilk would have you believe that immigrants are criminals, deviants and thugs.  Fox News has gotten much mileage vilifying immigrants on a regular basis.

So you may not have heard the story of Dr. Khurshid Guru last week.  Guru is an Indian American and the Director of Robotic Surgery at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in New York.

During a recent flight from Spain to the U.S., a 2-year old toddler suffered an asthma attack, requiring medication.  However, his parents had mistakenly included the treatment in their checked luggage.

The plane only had an adult inhaler, so Dr. Guru grabbed materials on the plane - a plastic water bottle, a cup, some tape and an oxygen tank - and built the boy a nebulizer.  The contraption allowed the boy to take in both oxygen and the asthma medicine simultaneously.   After a few minutes, the boy's oxygen level was normal in just a few minutes.

Our office deals with immigrants every single day and we see the positive contributions that the vast majority of them are making.  This story is just one example (albeit very dramatic) of how allowing smart immigrants like Dr. Guru into the country can really help Americans - even 2-year old boys who simply can't catch their breath.
