CENTREVILLE, Ill.—A group of nurses bonded an Illinois father out of jail after he broke several traffic laws while rushing his daughter to the hospital, KTVI reports.

Darius Hinkle said his 1-year-old daughter was choking on a penny, so he rushed her to the hospital. By the time he arrived at Touchette Regional Hospital in Centreville, several police officers with different agencies were behind him.

Hinkle admits he doesn’t have a valid driver’s license and he was speeding, according to KTVI. He was taken into custody at the hospital.

The little girl’s mother went to jail to bail Hinkle out, but a woman she didn’t recognize was already in the process of doing exactly that. The woman told her a group of nurses at the hospital chipped in their money to bond out the father.
