EMT with brain aneurysm making miraculous recovery

Multiple doctors said he wouldn't live, but EMS and firefighter Rob Kramer is going through physical therapy and misses working two jobs: "I feel like a bum"

His brother, Michael Regan, was told by multiple doctors at Pocono Medical Center that Kramer would never be a functioning member of society even if he lived, he said.

"We never contacted a funeral home or anything like that," Regan said. "But as far as the family, we were all prepared for the fatal end."
