LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It was a very special night for emergency responders in Louisville as they were reunited with the people whose lives they saved.

The annual awards banquet honored the specialist from MetroSafe, Louisville Metro EMS and firefighters across the Metro. This time, they were brought face to face with those they saved.

Carl Cravens, an EMT, that meant reuniting with Alpha Locke, but this time the meeting was under much better circumstances.

"You don't normally get this outcome a lot of times," said Cravens, "to be able to see and speak to her again is indescribable."

This was the first time patients were invited to the awards ceremony to be reunited with the workers.
