Watch a preview of the OneBlood production of Lifeline: The Untold Story of Saving the Pulse Survivors

We are honored and humbled that the OneBlood production of Lifeline: The Untold Story of Saving the Pulse Survivors has received a regional Emmy nomination. 

Lifeline is a riveting documentary that provides a never-before-seen perspective of what it took to save the lives of the victims from the Pulse nightclub shooting that unfolded on June 12, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.  It is a thought provoking, first-hand account of the vital role blood donors played the night of the Pulse shooting and the vital role they play every day across the nation.

The story takes the viewer on a journey on what it takes to save a person’s life and reveals some of the actual blood donors who helped save the survivors featured in the documentary.  At long last, some of these anonymous heroes are recognized as they come face-to-face in an emotional reunion with the survivors they helped save.

Lifeline also tells the story of the third shift team at the blood center that answered the phone call they never thought they would receive.  Their story is intertwined with the staff at the hospital who are on the other end of the line, urgently requesting more blood be brought to them. What transpires next is a race against the clock to save lives. A compelling story told first-hand by the people who made it happen. 

The documentary also takes viewers behind-the-scenes of OneBlood to show the massive, around-the-clock effort that takes place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to save lives.  Lifeline is the nation’s story and shows why the blood supply in every city needs to be taken seriously and why we cannot wait for a tragedy for the blood supply to become relevant.
