6 year old patient says thanks LSU Health


Luke Theriot, 6, is giving a big thanks to the staff at LSU Medical Center in Shreveport after they helped to save his life following a deadly car accident.

The car accident happened 6 months ago in Rapides Parish. His grandmother was killed and he was left with serious head injuries. He was flown by Life Air to the Trauma Center in LSU Medical Center in a desperate attempt to save his life.

He would make a full recovery.

"We wanted him to see all of the nurses and doctors that took care of him," says Luke's father Steven Theriot. "How much better he is doing, and what good they did."

Luke visited with nurses from the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Saturday, and handed over a book filled with pictures from his recovery.

"I'm trying to give them my book and say thank you," says Luke.

 Luke made a full recovery, and is now able to enjoy his favorite sport karate. Before visiting the hospital Luke won two trophies in a local karate tournament.

"I can't thank them enough for what they did for us," says Steven Theriot.

Before leaving the hospital Luke gave each nurse a hug.
