The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 63 - July 23rd Reports
Alright, shotted, listen up! No hiking, no jail -- and no waterparks! It's TROME
‘A 60-year-old man suffered a medical emergency while hiking in Sorrento Valley and died Sunday, a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department official said.
The man, who was with family members, suffered an apparent cardiac arrest and fell, Battalion Chief Matt Nilsen said.
The incident occurred about 4:45 p.m. about 1.5 miles up a trail off Sorrento Valley near Shaw Lopez Road.
Bystanders started CPR, and paramedics tried to save the man, but he died before he could be taken to a hospital, Nilsen said.’
‘An inmate was found unresponsive inside the Allegheny County Jail on Sunday morning.’
‘Corrections staff performed lifesaving measures until paramedics arrived.
Once they arrived, the inmate was pronounced dead.’
‘Allegheny County Police are investigating and the Allegheny County Medical Examiner will determine a cause and manner of death.’
Yes, folks, you read that right. Heat illness at the… waterpark.
‘A man was transported from Cowabunga Canyon on Saturday after experiencing heat-related illnesses.
According to a representative, a 26-year-old man encountered a non-water-related medical emergency and was transported to a nearby hospital.
Waterpark personnel assessed the individual, rendered aid, and contacted 911 for further care.’
This blaming the heat stuff is downright criminal.
‘A 44-year-old Rikers Island suspect was pronounced dead in his jail cell early Sunday morning, becoming the seventh person to die at the city jail complex this year, reports the New York Daily News.
Curtis Davis was discovered lifeless on the floor shortly after 5 a.m. and prompted a medical emergency after a correction officer noticed the man while he patrolled housing unit 5A, the report said, citing city Correction Department records.
About 40 minutes later -- following efforts to revive the man -- a doctor pronounced him dead, wrote the NYDN.’
‘In 2022, 19 detainers died on Rikers, and 16 died in 2021.’
‘Hikers found a 51-year-old man from Carencro, Louisiana, later identified as Robert Landry, unresponsive Monday in Rocky Mountain National Park. They found Landry about a mile from the Mount Ida Trailhead on the west side of the park, according to a park news release.
The hikers contacted park rangers using a personal locator beacon and gave Landry CPR until rangers arrived and continued medical care. Landry was later pronounced dead.
In its news release, the park wrote that the incident is under investigation and rangers extracted Landry using a litter, or stretcher, to carry him out to the trailhead. The Grand County Coroner’s Office took the body and announced Thursday that Landry’s death was consistent with an acute coronary event and high altitude pulmonary edema.’
