“My partners and I would come to the hospital every chance we got. ”

In the summer of 1991, Bryan Lindsay (L) was riding his bike on a Brooklyn street when he was hit by a van and almost killed.

He was 7 years old at the time.

Rowan Allen (R) was the paramedic on the scene, and recently the two men sat down at StoryCorps to remember that day.
