Navy Hero of Yom Kippur War is Flown Transatlantic

Mission Impossible? Decade Later, Navy Hero of Yom Kippur War is Flown Transatlantic on Heart Balloon Pump

VitalOne operates on its own kind of battlefield. When life hangs in the balance - even as the scales begin tipping in the wrong direction - our team soldiers on and pulls miracles out of thin air.

Decades after being crowned a navy hero of the Yom Kippur War, Vardi Brachia, 51, was in critical, unstable condition, kept barely alive by a network of life-sustaining machinery. His only hope for survival was a heart transplant in America, but no one in the world would undertake the dangerous mission of transporting a patient like that over the ocean. It meant flying the hospital along with him. Impossible.
