MAUMELLE, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas fire chief has donated a kidney to a teenager he didn’t know.
Maumelle Fire Chief Gerald Ezell said that the surgery took place Dec. 13, two days after he met 18-year-old Sidney Burnett of Granby, Missouri.
Ezell said that he discovered Burnett was in need when he saw a Facebook post from her mother, an old school friend.
He realized they had the same blood type. He says he felt God was telling him to “step across that line.”
