June 11, 2014 - The largest graduating class in McDowell High School history assembled at Erie Insurance Arena Wednesday night.

Among the Class of 2014 twins Joshua and Jonah Baronner were hoping to walk for their diplomas together.

As the two were preparing to accept their diplomas, Jonah suffered a collapsed lung and was admitted to Saint Vincent Hospital.

The twins were unable to walk on the stage together, but while Joshua was receiving his diploma a family friend in the stands was skyping the ceremony to Jonah's hospital room.

While Jonah did not get to accept his diplomas with his classmates, shortly after commencement ended Joshua walked into his hospital room and presented his brother with a rose and his high school diploma.
