Indiana names EMS workers killed in accident lifetime paramedics

Two EMS workers who were killed in an ambulance crash last month were given a special honor Friday.

Both have now been named lifetime paramedics for Indiana.

Paramedic Cody Medley and EMT Timothy McCormick died in the line of duty when a driver slammed into them downtown.

McCormick had taken the test to become a paramedic before the crash but hadn’t learned the results. He passed the exam.

Friday, his mother got a standing ovation as she was given his paramedic license in Brownsburg.

The Indiana EMS commission awarded the lifetime paramedic recognition to both young men in light of their service.
