Duke's Blair Holliday, injured in jet ski accident, pins nurse who saved his life

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Former Duke player Blair Holliday doesn’t remember much about the day a jet ski collision nearly cost him his life and left him with a traumatic brain injury. But he remembers the woman he calls his angel, nursing student Chelsea Gibbons. Gibbons, 20, graduated as a registered nurse from Pitt Community College and Holliday was there to personally pin Gibbons and show his gratitude for the day she saved his life, July 4, 2012.
