Kinney Noe has used 42 pints of blood in the fight for his life. During his first surgery at the UK Chandler Medical Center alone, doctors transfused 32 units to keep him alive. “That means that there’s 42 people who had to go in and give blood to give what he needed,” daughter Kindra Witak said. “Had those people not given blood, he would have died the first day.” But Kinney Noe has now survived longer than a month since falling from a tree stand onto a limb that impaled him, damaging his liver, lungs and diaphragm Nov. 13.
