Durham, N.C. — Lukas Iorio was involved in a motorcycle accident at the corner of South Miami Boulevard and Page Road on Nov. 20 that could’ve taken his live, but a nurse that happened to be close by started performing CPR.
Irio, 33, suffered broken ribs and a pierced lung, but the head injury he sustained is what has troubled him most after the accident.
“At times, we have moments of clarity,” said Iorio’s mother, Stephanie. “But for the most part, he’s pretty confused.”
Stephanie Iorio says she’s convinced her son would have died at the scene if it wasn’t for their ‘guardian angel’ in royal blue scrubs.
“She not only gave us our son, she gave my new granddaughter her daddy back,” Iorio said.
Lukas Iorio welcomed a daughter, Giada Hope Iorio, into the world on Thursday.
Iorio said they hoped to name her after the woman who saved her father.
“I do not know what I will say to her, but I know I have to do something special for her,’ she said.
The Iorio family located their 'guardian angel'—Vicki deDeugd—and plan to meet with her on Sunday.
