The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 101 - Oct 23rd - Oct 25th Reports
From the roadways to the waterways,from vacation to prison, and all points in-between, the absurd and the horrifying continue their gruesome duet in TROME
‘MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC/Gray News) - Family, friends, students and teachers at White Station High School in Memphis, Tennessee, are remembering a beloved student who died at school Monday morning.
Memphis-Shelby County Schools said ninth grader Kingston Davidson died after experiencing a medical emergency while at school.’
‘The school district released a statement on behalf of Kingston’s family that said in part, “They named him Kingston because they wanted him to have a strong name. He played football, loved math and fashion, and was already set on his career path of being an entrepreneur. He had a lawn business where he cut yards for family and friends.”’
‘District officials did not clarify how the student died, but they did say Kingston received immediate medical attention from school resource officers and paramedics.’
There’s a video of this one. It looks just like a guy driving normally except he’s going across people’s yards.
‘SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A driver was hospitalized after they crashed into a home in Southwest Miami-Dade following a medical emergency, police said.’
‘Surveillance video captured the victim’s black Ford pickup truck as it barreled into the house.’
‘According to Miami-Dade Police, the driver suffered a medical emergency, possibly a seizure or heart attack, and lost control of their vehicle, which caused him to crash into the home.
Fortunately, no one was home as the truck went straight through the kitchen and into the back wall, leaving behind a major mess for the homeowners but also something to be thankful for.’
Yeah, they can be thankful for not being at home. That makes no sense. Unless it’s a crap home, it’s probably a pretty nice place to be.
Was a nice place to be.
An employee at a lunch spot in Worcester County collapsed.
‘The employee who had collapsed is now recovering. All four students are trained how to handle emergency situations, but they had never encountered one before. Two of them went outside to call 911, while the other two stayed behind the counter with the employee who collapsed.’
This was determined to be a diabetic condition. There isn’t a health condition, it seems, that the covid shots don’t make worse, and diabetes is among the long list of conditions famously amplified by the shots, so I’m keeping this one in.
‘WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Ill. -- A person was sent to a hospital for a medical emergency after authorities stopped a vehicle in response to a property damage incident.’
‘Multiple 911 calls came in stating the vehicle was going east and had some damage to the rear tire and smoking.’
Try to picture it.
‘Deputies found the vehicle near Greenbriar Road along Route 13 and tried to pull the vehicle over. However, the car kept going at a low speed, even though the emergency lights were on and an audible siren was alerting the driver.’ [Emphasis added]
‘The sheriff's office said the driver was having difficulty staying on road and the rear tire appeared to "locked up" and broken. The tire was also giving off lots of smoke as well.’
‘Deputies saw the driver and said the person didn't appear to be aware what was going on.’
‘The car came to a stop after authorities executed a rolling road block […]’
‘Authorities ordered the driver out of the vehicle but they said the person seemed confused. Deputies then went into the car and helped the driver get out.
"During this initial conversation it became apparent that the driver was suffering from a medical emergency, WCSO said. " An ambulance was summoned and it was discovered the driver was suffering from a diabetic condition."’
‘ROSS BARNETT RESEVOIR, Miss. (WLBT) - A Hinds County woman had a medical emergency while driving on Lower Spillway Road Tuesday afternoon, sending her vehicle off the road, according to Reservoir Police Chief Trevell Dixon.
She managed to get out of her SUV, which came to a rest in a culvert.
As a precaution, she was sent by ambulance to a hospital, Dixon said.’
‘FORT MOORE, Ga. (WRBL) — A Fort Moore soldier died after experiencing a medical emergency on Friday, according to the Fort Moore public affairs office.
[The soldier] went through a medical emergency while participating in an on-post training event with his company.’
‘[He] was taken to Martin Army Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead.’
‘An investigation to determine [his] cause of death is ongoing.’
This might be the scariest thing I’ve read all week:
It doesn’t get scary until the subheading:
‘Co-ordinated editorial calls on World Health Organization to declare global health emergency’
Put all these people in a room and leave them there. That’s my proposal.
‘More than 200 medical journals are calling on the World Health Organization to deem two overlapping environmental crises — climate change and biodiversity loss — as a global health emergency, while warning of the potential for "catastrophic harm" to human health.’
‘"The climate crisis and loss of biodiversity both damage human health, and they are interlinked," said lead author Kamran Abbasi, editor in chief of the British Medical Journal, in a statement.
"That's why we must consider them together and declare a global health emergency. It makes no sense for climate and nature scientists and politicians to consider the health and nature crises in separate silos."’
These people are literally insane. And, as much respect as may be, or may not be, reserved for the British Medical Journal, here we do have scientists treading, it seems, quite far afield. I haven’t read their corrupt proposal. I just found out about it. On its face, though, it sounds stunningly horrible. And, like everything else in TROME, you know it can only get worse.
‘The authors are now calling on the WHO to declare both issues a global health emergency at or before the next World Health Assembly in May 2024 […]’
I really don’t like the sound of this.
‘POTOMAC, MD — A Virginia man died in a two-car crash on Democracy Boulevard in Potomac early Saturday evening, according to the Montgomery County Police Department.’
‘His Kia left the road, causing a 2015 BMW to hit the curb and leave the roadway, according to police. The driver of the BMW was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

‘A woman died on Monday after suffering from an apparent medical emergency while in custody at the Harris County Jail, marking the 15th reported death this year.
Court records say 50-year-old Dominga Barrera Trevino was booked into the jail on June 29 after being charged with assaulting a security officer. According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, detention officers were notified that Trevino was suffering from a medical emergency in a medical ward of the jail on Monday. She was pronounced dead in the jail clinic at around 10:32 p.m.’
‘Trevino is the 15th person to reportedly die while in custody at the Harris County Jail this year. This comes two weeks after a man died due to complications related to a terminal illness while in custody at the jail. Last year, at least 27 people died while in custody at the Harris County Jail — the highest number in nearly two decades, according to county records and data from Texas Justice Initiative.’
‘A passenger on a boat near Lighthouse Park suffered a cardiac event and died Saturday, Oct. 21.’
‘The initial call came in at 11:49 a.m. Mukilteo Fire Chief Glen Albright said another passenger on the boat started CPR. The boat initially tried to dock at the boat launch. No docks were available and the boat pulled up to the shore.
Firefighters removed the passenger from the boat and continued CPR, but the patient did not survive, Albright said. Emergency personnel were at Lighthouse Park when the boat arrived and worked on the passenger for just under an hour.’
‘A situation broke out during the Warriors – Suns game that started the NBA regular season of 2023-24. An elderly lady suffered a health scare that caught the players’ attention.

The medical emergency that caused the accident was not described by first responders.’
‘Ganesha football coach Don Cayer is recovering in the hospital after suffering a heart attack in the final moments of Friday’s high school football game against La Puente.’

Cayer was then rushed by ambulance to a hospital.’

Worst story of the day.
‘Ashley Dupont revealed that her daughter Stella Quinn suffered from a “catastrophic event” on October 15 that she never recovered from.’
‘A GoFundMe set up by a friend to support the Dupont family revealed she suddenly collapsed and went into cardiac arrest at the theme park.
While first responders were able to successfully resuscitate the 8-year-old girl, she remained unresponsive as they transported her to an emergency room. ’
‘Doctors there discovered Stella was suffering from “spontaneous bleeding near the brainstem which occluded the blood flow to her brain,” the GoFundMe revealed. ’
‘The young girl was soon transported to Arnold Palmer Hospital.
She was declared dead on October 18.
“There is absolutely nothing that could have prepared us for the nightmare we have been in since Sunday afternoon,” Stella’s mother said in a statement.
“Our gorgeous girl, Stella Quinn, suffered a catastrophic event that she did not deserve and no parent should ever have to witness.” ’
8 years old.
What in the world.
‘It was a frightening moment for some kids from the Galway Central School District. Earlier this month their bus driver experienced a medical emergency that ultimately led to the bus crashing into a tree.’
‘While it remains unclear what caused the medical emergency in Galway, new federal regulations are focusing more on drivers.’
Some interesting notes:
‘Philip O’Brien, a training manager at the CDL school in Menands, says some school bus drivers will have to check in with the doctor more regularly before they can get behind the wheel.’
‘“The things that they are getting really strict about is blood pressures as well as BMI’s. Back in the day there was not any real regulations set in place and now they’re actually drawing a line,” said O’Brien.’
Back in the day.
I remember back in the day.
‘A 61-year-old Wernersville man died in Reading Hospital after his vehicle slammed into the back of a rollback tow truck that was stopped along Route 222 in Spring Township for a roadside assistance call Sunday afternoon, officials said.’
‘Police arrived and found Olsen unresponsive inside the vehicle, which had heavy front-end damage. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital.’
‘Police said witnesses described the vehicle as suddenly veering across two lanes before crashing into the truck. The coroner’s office said there was no evidence to indicate Olsen suffered a medical emergency prior to the crash.’

However, fans of Lauryn Hill in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania were left severely disappointed upon hearing the news that her show tonight (October 23) is be canceled.
According to a statement, Lauryn Hill is experiencing some wear and tear on her voice — a result of singing her face off at the last few shows.’
Intriguing. I had to check for an update. I guess about a month later the whole tour was kiboshed:
‘Lauryn Hill has made the decision to cancel the remaining dates of her tour, including the upcoming show in Philadelphia today (Nov. 25).’
‘Hill took to Instagram to explain that she’s been struggling with severe vocal strain for the past month. She relied on Prednisone to endure the tour, but is now taking a break for genuine vocal recovery, discontinuing the medication.’
Wishing her all the best.
