We all have those calls that make us laugh or make us wanna slap the sense back into someone...both on the fire side and ems so lets here em.....come on dispatchers you have to have some of the best...lol.
We were paged one night to an 18 year old who had fallen in the highway...(all report given) I was riding the first truck on scene and radio to dispatch that CPR was in progress..(his buddy not F.D) upon further investigation we found the pt had a distinctive pulse and was also breathing and alert. I dont know what the hell his buddy was doing. As soon as we walked up we told the (cpr live saver buddy) to stop. Come to find out the two kids were out doing a little drinking. They stoped to leak the lizards, and the pt passed out. His buddy just decided to call 911 and hang up so he could do compressions..lol... It is a good thing he wasnt doing them properly or his drunk friend could have had a few broken ribs. As soon as we figured out what was going on we advised medics to down grade to code 1. We still have that rap of going from full cpr, with a helo responce and code 3 to the pt is alert oriented and pretty damn drunk.. Hope i am never sleeping in front of the rescurer( buddy who saved his life with his quick thinking)!!!lol
