SIMON HITCHES A RIDE ON A MEDEVAC WHICH HAS
A CHANGE IN ITINERARY, ON ABC'S "COMBAT HOSPITAL"
"Wrong Place at the Right Time" -- When Simon learns the medevac helicopter has to make a routine supply run, he hitches a ride to the farm he bought from an Afghan family, as it's en route. Plans go awry, though, when the chopper's pilots spot white tracer fire and have to make an unexpected stop to pick up an injured U.S. soldier with multiple shrapnel wounds. Then one of Rebecca's patients -- a Romanian civilian -- suffers a brain hemorrhage and emergency neurosurgery becomes vital to his survival. Since Simon can't get back in time to perform the surgery, he must talk Rebecca through the operation via cell phone from the medevac. Meanwhile Bobby and Pedersen evaluate a high-ranking U.S. Air Force officer experiencing insomnia - the officer has a pending mission that's critical to the Air Force's strategic operations.
