WELLSBORO, Pa. — Paramedic Brian Tarabori was laid to rest on Dec. 15 after being in an ICU fighting COVID-19 for two weeks, WENY reported.

Tarabori joined Soldiers and Sailors Hospital as a paramedic in 1991, according to the Home Page Network. Before that, he was a member of the Goodyear Hose Company and Gale Hose Ambulance.

The paramedic contracted COVID-19 while on duty and died on Dec. 12.

On Dec. 15, Wellsboro ALS held a procession in honor of Tarabori. Friends, family members and co-workers gathered at the Wellsboro Fire Department Annex, went to the Williamsport Hospital, returned to Wellsboro, and brought Tarabori back to his home in Galeton, where they laid him to rest.[0]=AZVBekq7rRvjiHExSJbVEI3PlVzelGOCEO3w3RuaIGbk3pmf8rfW79Sf25U-5NubXMhbDsZS1uThgYO7jFYd15VxVwoKfnNBmK3HglGT56CiOIIRRkGQTx_fNmZmqMvKDZY&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R
