The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 57 - July 17th Reports
A teen athlete survives, a car takes a dive, and a bunch of people save lives. Officer down, inmate down, man down, a woman survives, and a little baby is probably just fine. It's TROME
Youth cardiac arrests always fall in the category of TROME.
‘15-year-old Canen Dickman, an incoming freshman at Worthington Kilbourne High School, collapsed during soccer practice on July 7.’
‘Canen was running on the track at the high school when the medical emergency happened.’
‘With the help of an AED another coach grabbed from inside the school, Sprunger was able to save Canen's life.
"They have said over and over and over to us that if it weren’t for the quick efforts of the coaches and also for them using the AED, he wouldn’t be here right now," Dickman said.’
‘After more than a week in the hospital, he was able to go home on July 16.’
‘Police are trying to determine how a car ended up in a central Mississauga pond earlier today (July 17) in an incident that sent one man to hospital with undisclosed injuries.
According to Peel Regional Police, the man was the lone occupant of the vehicle when it entered the small pond in the area of Hillcrest Ave. and Clayhill Rd., near Dundas St. W. and Mavis Rd., at about 11:30 a.m.’
‘Police didn’t reveal the age of the man, nor did they provide any details on his condition.’
‘The spokesperson told insauga.com that investigators are focusing on the events immediately before the car entered the water.
Mechanical failure of the vehicle or a medical emergency/episode experienced by the driver are among possibilities being investigated.’
‘Two University of North Georgia (UNG) Public Safety officers have been credited with saving the life of a runner on July 4.’
‘Bryan Schuler collapsed while running in the Firecracker 5K.’
Okay, hold up. So, it wasn’t just a “runner.” It was a runner taking part in a 5k run meet.
‘"I checked the subject, and he was breathing intermittingly at first then he stopped," Clements said. "I started chest compressions and executed approximately 40 compressions and then the subject came back to us."
Schuler was taken to a nearby hospital.’
‘"Due to the officers' response, I truly believe this was a life-saving event. I'm not a doctor, but it looked like his vitals stopped and the officers regained his vitals," Jarrard said. "It would have been a different outcome if they weren't present."’
Great. Good to know. But we still don’t know what happened to the runner. A “cardiac event” of some type, it sounds like.
‘According to the department, in the early days of December 2022, 9-year-old Daniel Wutzke's mother, Melissa Wutzke, called 911 after she was struggling to breathe, but was unable to even speak to dispatch.
Luckily, Daniel was nearby and was able to take the phone and properly relay their address and Melissa's condition to the call taker. This allowed the Security Fire Department to respond to Daniel's mother's emergency and provided medical care.’
‘The sheriff's office said that 11-year-old Liam VadBunker was instrumental in helping his younger brother during a medical emergency that occurred in April of this year.
VadBunker was at home when his 3-year-old younger brother said he was not feeling well and began to have a seizure.
Liam told the dispatcher it was the scare of his life, but due to his quick thinking, he was able to call 911 and speak with dispatcher Diedre DiFazio.
DeFazio was able to calm Liam down and reassure him everything would work out. Due to their quick actions, the Security Fire Department was able to respond and administer aid to Liam's brother.’
‘The sheriff's office is also awarding 15-year-old Liam Gordon for his instrumental role in helping his brother get medical assistance after suffering a seizure. The sheriff's office said the incident occurred in March 2023.
Dispatcher Krisyn Marmet answered the call and Liam explained that his little brother was not breathing. Liam's family was screaming in the background.
The sheriff's office said that due to Liam's calm and composed attitude, he was able to confirm his family's address for the Security Fire Department to respond. During their response, Liam's brother regained consciousness and played a big part in calming his family down.’
I had a roommate in high school that suffered from grand mal seizures from epillepsy. Epilleptics, I understand, tend to know they are epilleptic, and their seizures don’t result in whole-family panicked screaming.
As for the first story, the woman”unable to breathe,” well, that sounds more and more like people are experiencing wild goings-on with their hearts — their blood pressure will skyrocket or plummet. Mysterious heart conditions, I think, are behind a lot of these medical emergencies. And that study that just came out showing heart damage in 1 in 35 of Moderna-shotted healthcare workers, in Switzerland really is the grand-slam. Tell that to anybody and they’re through. They don’t have an argument. “Mild and transient” doesn’t matter — especially given not only the constraints of the study but the actual temporal constraints we have right now, since the shots are still in the long-term study phase of the mass human trials.

These all three sound like vaccine injury to me.
‘The sheriff's office announced that another deputy, Richard Reynolds, had died earlier in the week. Reynolds, a 27-year-veteran, died after having a "medical emergency" on July 11, according to Sgt. Russell Davis. A fundraising page in his memory attributed the death to cardiac arrest.’
6) Another person dies after a medical emergency in the Harris County Jail, marking the 10th death this year
‘A man died over the weekend after suffering from an apparent medical emergency at the Harris County Jail, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. At least 10 people have reportedly died while in the county’s custody this year.
The sheriff’s office says Oscar Villazana, 49, was booked on Oct. 3, 2022 after allegedly assaulting a family member. On July 13, he was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital after suffering from a “medical emergency,” according to the sheriff’s office. Days later, 10:14 p.m. on July 16, he was pronounced dead.
Villazana’s cause of death will be determined through an autopsy conducted by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.’
‘A woman has been left in a critical condition after she suffered a medical emergency over Cannock Chase. Emergency services rushed to the scene at Cannock Chase Military Cemetery in Brocton just before 3pm yesterday, July 16.’
‘A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "We were called to a medical emergency at the Cannock Chase Military Cemetery in Brocton, Cannock just before 3pm yesterday (Sunday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill were sent to the scene where, on arrival, crews found a woman in a critical condition.’
She was taken to the hospital. No further word on the cause.
‘A man's body was found in a car park - prompting police to swarm the area. The death is currently being treated as unexplained.
Emergency services were called to Gresley Close in Woodside, Telford, at around 6.30am on Monday, July 17. The man, who was in his 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
West Mercia Police has now appealed for those with information to come forward. Officers are particularly keen to speak to those in the area during the early hours.’
‘A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "We were called to a medical emergency at Gresley Close in Woodside, Telford, at around 6.30am. An ambulance and paramedic officer were sent to the scene where, on arrival, crews discovered a male patient. Sadly, it quickly became clear that the man could not be saved and he was confirmed dead at the scene."’
The article is accompanied with a video that claims on the thumbnail that 1 in 30 children have febrile seizures. I think that claim is so outlandish that the fact-checking apparatus at the publication — not the censorship kind of “fact-checking,” just the normal kind — short-circuited. It could just be a typo.
But keep in mind the claim that this is common — 3 percent is common to me — takes center stage in an article that actually starts like this:
A BRAVE mum has shared a video of her son convulsing to help other parents spot warning signs.
‘She recorded the distressing experience as she knew she wouldn't be able to describe it to a doctor.’
So, the dichotomous tone and untenable factual stance of this article is that a febrile seizure is so common it can’t be understood by a doctor without a video of it to play for him.
‘According to the mun, he had two episodes within 12 hours.
This is called a febrile seizure and can sometimes happen when a child has a high temperature.
They most often occur between the ages of six months and three years.’
Great. How common is it?
‘Around one in every child will experience an attack.’ [sic]
Well, I don’t know. I never heard too much about febrile seizures until recently, and I figure if 3% of us have them then I damn well would have heard about them. It sounds like a seizure that happens as a result of a rapidly increasing fever in an infant or toddler. The organization that’s referenced, Tiny Hearts, apparently focuses medical readiness for mothers. It sounds like the true “febrile seizure” is less scary than it looks, and it is distinguished from other types of seizures by being caused by a rising temperature. I do often hear the phrase “suspected febrile seizure” in the case of an infant having a seizure, which makes sense when trying to delineate it from other, scarier types of seizures. Or that could be just wishful thinking.
Either which way, I’d like to see some real numbers on this topic. And I’d like to see them from before 1986 as well.
