Doctors at the local hospital refused to treat him, saying, &ldquo;He is too far gone, let him die with&nbsp;<br /> dignity.&quot;&nbsp;</p> <p>Left to die in the hospital hallway, Thomas&#39; friend smashed a fired alarm that started a sequence of events which sent Thomas to a trauma hospital where one brilliant, daring, and innovative surgeon took a chance on him.&nbsp;</p> <p>These life saving measures initiated a series of &ldquo;little miracles&rdquo;
