Lifeline Debuts on Amazon Prime Video

Lifeline Debuts on Amazon Prime Video

(December 28, 2017 – Orlando, Florida)  The riveting documentary, Lifeline: The Untold Story of Saving the Pulse Survivors is now available on Amazon Prime Video.

Lifeline delivers 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 story about extraordinary people who are forever linked to saving the lives of the victims from one of our nation’s worst mass shootings, yet their stories have never been told … until now.

The one-of-a-kind documentary features Pulse survivors as they learn of anonymous blood donors who are responsible for helping save their lives. Donors of varying ages and backgrounds that the survivors were not even aware existed until it was brought to their attention. At long last, some of these blood donors are revealed as they come face-to-face in an emotional reunion with the Pulse survivors they helped save.

Lifeline also provides exclusive footage inside the hospital with trauma doctors and nurses who provide minute-by-minute accounts of how fast the blood transfusions were taking place and the unprecedented amount of blood they were using. Their story is intertwined with the third-shift team at OneBlood, the local blood center that was racing against the clock to get more blood to the hospital, a compelling story told first-hand by the people who made it happen. 

The worldwide debut of Lifeline coincides with National Blood Donor month which is recognized in January.  The documentary provides a powerful message and shines a spotlight on the vital importance of the blood supply in every city and why we cannot wait for a tragedy to donate blood.

Lifeline is a groundbreaking production and marks the first time a blood center created a documentary that has resulted in a worldwide television release.  “We are honored this important story will be seen around the globe. It will help raise awareness about the importance of a ready blood supply and show the lifesaving difference blood donors make in the world,” said Susan Forbes, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for OneBlood and the Director of Lifeline. 

In addition to Lifeline being available on Amazon Prime Video, the documentary is also in national television syndication throughout January.  Be sure and check local listings for broadcast times.

Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Photo ID is required.

All donors receive a wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature and iron count, including a cholesterol screening, plus a surprise gift.

One of three people will need blood in their lifetime. Blood that is donated today will likely be transfused within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant.
