Can't Wait For The Horses
A PUCKETT EMS CREW (Cobb County, Georgia) was transporting a cardiac emergency to the hospital Tuesday when their ambulance broke down …… 300 yards away from their destination.
Fox5 Atlanta reported:
After Manny Piri suffered a heart attack, Vicki Borgia and Chris Gudaitis knew they had to get the 49-year-old man to the hospital quickly. The ambulance, however, would not cooperate. It stalled about 300 yards from the hospital's entrance. Another ambulance was several miles away, but Vicki and Chris knew that every second mattered.
"We both at the same time spontaneously said we need to just pull him," said Vicki Borgia. They jumped out of the ambulance and, with the help of a student-paramedic who was with them, pushed the patient up the hill to the emergency room.
"I was hoping we were just going to make it up the hill. It's a pretty steep hill,"said Vicki.
Their perseverence and dedication paid off because just two minutes after they got him onto a hospital bed, the patient started going into arrest. Today he's alive and smiling.
Ch. 5 also filed this video report which includes a nice interview with the paramedics:
