The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 40
Watch out for that house! Confused cops, a delayed Queen Mary, a firefighter has a heart attack in an ER, more confused cops, an 8 year-old hero, a man, a woman, and a music festival. It's TROME.
JUN 30 REPORTS
‘A Livonia man was taken to the hospital after he crashed into a house, causing his car to ignite and set the house on fire, police said.
The crash happened Friday morning, June 30, in the area of Adams and 5 Mile roads in Livonia.
Officials believe a 54-year-old Livonia man had a medical emergency while driving. The crash was not caused by drugs, alcohol, or distracted driving, they said.
The impact caused the car to catch on fire, and the flames spread to the house, according to authorities.’
‘Officials took the driver to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.’
‘The police department received reports of a shooting in Chickamauga, Georgia on Thursday.’

‘The Queen Mary 2, currently on a seven-night westbound transatlantic crossing, has experienced an unexpected delay in its arrival to New York City due to a medical emergency onboard. The ocean-liner diverted its course to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where it arrived on June 30.’

Sometimes things don’t happen at the worst time. Sometimes they happen at the best time.
‘A Reedy Creek firefighter is getting a second chance at life after his heart stopped while on the job.’
‘In mid-April, Hollingsworth and his partner dropped off a patient at the hospital when he started feeling pressure on his chest.
They didn’t think anything of it until he started feeling off.
After returning to the hospital his heart stopped as soon as he entered the emergency room.
“I remember I tried to grab the bed,” Hollingsworth said. “They told me I had a heart attack and my heart had stopped and they, you know, did CPR and shocked me back.”
The emergency room staff told us they were under pressure to save Hollingsworth because of friendship with him.
Some of the technicians compared it to operating on their family.’
Heat stroke? A CHP officer? “CHP” stands for California Highway Patrol. You don’t patrol the California highway on foot. This one is sus.
‘On Wednesday around 3:40 p.m. a CHP Newhall Area Officer suffered from heat stroke, near Sand and Lost Canyon Roads, but at the time it was thought to have been a stroke, Officer Josh Greengard, spokesperson for the CHP Newhall Area Office said.
“He is at home now recovering,” Greengard told KHTS Friday.
The officer is expected to fully recover and return to patrol sometime next week.’
They thought he had an actual stroke, even though — I’m assuming — conditions of heat stroke were present? Give me a break. This is ABTV. You don’t get heat stroke driving around with AC all day.
