MANCHESTER – Peter Fleming is a bit of a local celebrity in Manchester and across the state. He has been a competitor and staff member for New Hampshire Special Olympics and on the National Council on Disabilities and NH Council on Developmental Disabilities.
Recently Peter experienced a medical incident which that led to a diagnosis of a terminal glioblastoma. Peter was moved to a nursing facility in Bedford on Tuesday for medical care.
Having met many members of law enforcement over the years, a special group was coordinated from across the state to escort him.
Cruisers, EMS, and fire officials lined up outside the Elliot Hospital and Peter was lifted into an AMR ambulance and the journey began. With lights and sirens, the entourage proceeded through Manchester.
Police departments from as far away as Waterville Valley, NHSP, and many other departments participated.
