Some 1200 well wishers and community leaders from across Central Indiana paid tribute to the EMTs tragically killed over the weekend.
Hundreds poured into Clowes Hall at Butler University for a memorial service. They remembered Timothy McCormick and Cody Medley who died after the crash involving their ambulance and a black Honda driven by Jade Hammer, 21, early Saturday.
Medley's father, Jeff, stated, "We've got a hole in our heart. Cody was an amazing individual. He lighted up everyone with his smile. You couldn't stay mad at Cody because he'd throw that smile at you and it was just, it was done. You couldn't be mad at him anymore." His mother, Stacy, stated they were very proud of their son's chosen profession as a paramedic. Medley said she felt that Cody's colleagues loved him and will miss him almost as much as his family will.
Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann and Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard were among those who called the EMTs everyday heroes.
