CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A Darlington County family is thanking two South Carolina Highway Patrol troopers for helping a young man get to a critical surgery.

Multiple media outlets report that about a week ago, Bradley Howle’s family got an early morning call that a kidney transplant was available if he could make it to Medical University of South Carolina by 5:30 a.m. The 23-year-old had been on a waiting list since 2011.

On the way to Charleston, the family blew a tire on the interstate and had no spare tire. They called the Highway Patrol and received rides from troopers Antonio Brown and C.P. Basel. They arrived at the hospital in a patrol car with flashing lights and just minutes to spare.

A week later, the family got to thank the troopers in person, and Bradley Howle was discharged from the hospital Friday.
