Miles Weske and fiance Brooke

— Almost four months after being seriously injured in a medical helicopter crash, a flight paramedic walked down the aisle and tied the knot this past weekend.

Flight paramedic Miles Weske, 34, was enroute to pick up a patient on September 17, 2016, when the helicopter he was aboard crashed. Two others on board the helicopter were also seriously injured.

Pilot Joshua Jones, 47, and flight nurse Scott Scepaniak, 44, were also in the helicopter. Both Jones and Scepaniak were in serious condition, but were later released from the hospital.

“I am a paramedic. I always will be and I want to get back in that helicopter as soon as I can,” Weske said.

Weske spent months in the hospital.

He suffered fractures in his neck, leg, clavicle and ribs. He also suffered a traumatic brain injury and severely damaged his liver.

Miles was released from the hospital November 18, 2016 and was scheduled to return to work January 1, 2017.

Weske was originally supposed to marry his fiance, Brooke, who’s also a flight nurse, last October.

The two walked down the aisle Saturday.
