The tones drop, you get to the rig, lights and siren scream out. You are on your way to a 5-month-old baby. Dispatcher says its an “unknown medical” call.
You get on scene and are met by frantic family members. You and your partner get into the house and the mother is crying. In between her sobs she’s begging you to save her baby. When you finally get to the child, you see that it is seizing. Then it stops. There is nothing. No movement and no breathing.
This is the first time you’ve ever handled a call like this.
You’ve only been an EMT for two weeks.
Training wasn’t like this. It wasn’t this real.
