My 2nd 9-1-1 Call

Last time, I shared my first 9-1-1 call experience. Well, I did not know that I would call 9-1-1 again any time soon, but it turned out that I was wrong.

Last week, I made a 9-1-1 call again. It happened after sunset, and it began to get dark.  I saw someone, a white male in his 40s or 50s, lying on the ground beside a small truck in the parking lot of a nearby Mexican restaurant.  There was no other people in the parking lot, and so no one saw or knew that the man was lying there.  I did not know what happened to him and whether or not he was dead or alive, so without any hesitation, I made the 9-1-1 before approaching near the man.  (Yeah, I am rather careful about everything.)  I told the 9-1-1 operator the situation — a man lying on his back on the ground and the location, and then the operator asked me what happened to him and if he was alive or dead.  I said, "I don’t know."  As I approached closer to the man, I noticed his chest was moving up and down.  Hence, I told the operator, "Wait! I think he is alive because he is still breathing."  Then, I felt safe to get near him. (Because if he was dead and I got too close, I might mess up the crime scene.  But now, he was not dead, so I was less concerned about it.)  In short, the operator kept on asking many other questions, which I did not really know, but the man was probably having a seizure.  Fortunately, nothing was life threatening. … (Skipping unimportant details)  At last, several emergency workers come to the scene to check on the man, and I left those workers to take care of the man and situation and headed back to the house.

I think I will not hesitate to call 9-1-1 again if the situation is required. It is the least that I can help. :)

    古貝赫坦:1. You don’t want to see people die in front of you because of the result of you not calling 9-1-12. If you were the person who was in troulbe, you would want other people to do the same and help you, wouldn’t you? :)其實是一個很簡單的道理:如果你想要別人怎樣對待你可以先用那樣的方式對待週遭的人 :)

    He just had a seizure.
    I left those workers to take care things and walked home.
    I think he either was taken to a hospital or got okay after "seizure attack" … :p
    I already did what I could do within my own ability.
    (Not going to worry about the rest of part of story. lol )
