Two EMTs went out of their way to help hospice patient Laura Mullins realize her dying wish to see a lighthouse on Monday, and then swung by a local McDonalds so she could enjoy her favorite sandwich.

For most of her life, the 55-year-old Ohio native had been intrigued by lighthouses. Her room in Massachusetts is decorated with photos and miniature models of the structure, yet she had never managed to actually see one for real, CBS News reported.

Mullins has no family in the state who could help her realize her dying wish so, after she asked, hospice nurse Beverly Bellegarde she set about making the dream a reality.

Bellegarde approached Brewster Ambulance Service for assistance in transporting Mullins and the company jumped at the opportunity to help.

On Monday, EMTs Brian Costa and Era Koroveshi loaded Mullins, her chaplain and Bellegarde into an ambulance and drove to the Scituate Lighthouse, which was more than an hour’s drive away.

When they arrived, Mullins was rolled right up to the lighthouse, in her bed, where the chaplain said a blessing and the group admired the expansive coastline before clambering back into the ambulance to stop at McDonalds.

“Today we did not transport a Kindred Hospice patient to a hospital but to the #Scituate #Lighthouse and @McDonalds, her final wishes,” Brewster Ambulance Service tweeted.

Johnathon Bobbit-Miller, the company's paramedic field training officer and public relations contact, told CBS News that the EMTs did not have to do what they did for Mullins.

“They could have said no. They felt compelled to make this wish come true,” he said.

Mullins said the day was a “dream come true," according to Boston 25 News.
