Engineer Fitted with Big Heart

When Arnie heard that a woman was trapped alone in an elevator, he was off to the rescue. He climbed down the elevator shaft, crawled through the roof and kept her company until she was freed. The next day, he sent flowers. In his official capacity, Arnie LeMay, 58, is director of engineering at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. Unofficially, he’s “the engineer with a big heart.” Hospital CEO Chip Peal calls him Frankfort’s MacGyver. Arnie can fix, build or rig anything, which makes him a lifesaver at home, at work and across the globe.
