Vandals to the Rescue
October 04, 2018
Renee Love's paleontology class expected to discuss 50-million-year-old mammal bones when visiting John Day Fossil Beds, not deal with broken bones. While exploring the rocky hills, the class heard a woman scream. The woman had just broken her ankle, and her husband and daughter couldn't move her. The students immediately evaluated the situation and used a plastic boot from Love — a geological sciences instructor who was recovering from a stress fracture — to stabilize her foot. Then they carried the woman the 20-minute hike back to her car. Way to rise to the challenge, Vandals!
