These Two Men Are Saving Lives in Italy
In a time of great need, humanity is showing its true colors around the world.
Healthcare organizations are working around the clock to provide care for those affected by the current outbreak.
A hospital in Brescia, Italy, one of the regions hit hardest, was in dire need of replacement valves for their life-saving respirator machines.
With the supplier unable to help, an Italian journalist reached out to a local tech company with 3D-Printing capabilities.
Three hours later the two-man team of Cristian Fracassi and Alessandro Romaioli returned with a prototype.
They haven’t stopped since. After partnering up with another local firm, BBC reported that the team hasn’t slept in days and they are printing hundreds of the life-saving devices, free of charge.
These men are heroes.
