Officer Sean Finn is with the Franklin Police, and was transferred to JFK Medical Center in need of an ECMO bed.

Cheers filled the entrance of JFK Medical Center in Atlantis Wednesday morning, as Officer Sean Finn and his wife, Lauren, walked outside. Sean Finn was originally admitted into a local hospital in Nashville in January.”On Jan. 14, he needed ECMO and his hospital flew him down here because it was the only one that had beds and ECMOs available. And he’s been here ever since,” Lauren Finn told WPBF 25 News. “He was on ECMO for 81 days and some of those days were dark and didn’t look optimistic so this is a huge celebration.”It was an emotional, celebratory send-off as the Finns were finally able to go back home to Tennessee. “He was suffering from severe hypoxia, under pure sedation, paralytic, and a ventilator,” Lauren said.Local law enforcement agencies were present at the medical center, alongside health care professionals.”Show support, we don’t know Officer Finn, we didn’t know until he came down here and met him. But, to show that, despite the fact that we didn’t know him prior to this, that we are a brotherhood,” Adam Myers, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police in West Palm Beach, told WPBF 25 News. “It’s life-changing, thank you so much, I appreciate it,” Sean Finn said to a crowd before he was escorted into a van for Palm Beach International Airport. “We’re going home! And we have a 1-year-old and a 2-year-old little girl so we are just going to snuggle and soak it all up,” Lauren said.
