Frontline Hero 1000 feet up.

New York, New York | Frontline

Amen Alhadi is a single dad and flight paramedic. He has been toiling, like many, treating covid patients.

He is a hero because he does this while enduring isolation from his family. He hasn’t seen his daughter since March because her mother has Asthma and is concerned about getting the disease. He hasn’t seen me since March because I live in Boston while I’m doing a fellowship at Boston Children’s hospital. He works long hours under heart wrenching circumstances and goes home and is totally alone. I worry about him, but when I speak with him he is so upbeat and positive. He works in the NYC/Long Island region.

He has seen the horrible things we see in the news, but he is so humble and positive you’d never imagine there was a human crisis going on from his positivity. Still, I know he is doing this to protect me and not have me worry. He comes from a family of paramedics and FDNY fire fighters in Brooklyn, so he and his siblings have been making sacrifices and helping to save the world. They live in a world that straddles public safety and healthcare. They are not as recognized as police and fire fighters, or doctors and nurses, but Amen like other EMS providers don't expects recognition.

He is a humble hero (and handsome too). He doesn’t want recognition, but he deserves it.  He is a my boyfriend, a great dad and an amazing human.
