Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital part of Amazing Survival Story on Dateline NBC

On Sunday, February 15th, Dateline NBC broadcast "Escape From Brushy Mountain", the story of Scott Johnston and Sean Farmer's fight to survive after being shot by infamous Appalachian Trail killer Randall Lee Smith last year.
Scott and Sean were treated at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. Click below for a clip from the broadcast, including Scott's reunion with some of the Neurotrauma Intensive Care nurses who treated him.

(One note about the story's mention of the victim's unpaid medical bills - all of Carilion's hospital charges relating to the incident were written off. )

Our best wishes to Scott and Sean!
