The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 28
Quincy Jones may have had a bad date. RIP Big Pokey. Shotted be advised to avoid: cafes, roadways, police station lobbies, and amusement parks.
JUN 18 REPORTS
‘Music legend Quincy Jones faced a health scare recently.
According to reports, the Motown Founder was rushed to the hospital this past Saturday (June 17th) following a complication from something he ate.’ [Emphasis added]
“A complication”? M’kay. Eating can be complicated at 90 years old, I’ve heard.
‘Veteran Houston rapper Big Pokey (aka Melvin Powell) died Saturday night shortly after collapsing on stage during a Beaumont, Texas performance. He was 45 and the cause of death has not been determined.
Video from the performance shows Big Pokey gasping in mid-lyric, then falling on his back. A nurse in the crowd administered CPR and he was taken to a hospital just after midnight. He died shortly thereafter.’ [Emphasis added]
‘A helicopter crew was sent to the Aberdeenshire town from the Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance's base in Aberdeen and was seen landing at Stonehaven Beach.
They had been called following reports of a medical emergency at a beachside cafe. The casualty was later reportedly taken by road ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
It is unknown at this time the condition of the person.’ [Emphasis added]
‘The Henry County Sheriff’s Office responded to a fatal single-vehicle crash that left a Richmond man dead early Sunday evening.’
‘Upon arrival, officers found a 2015 Buick Encore located off the roadway that had crashed into a tree. The driver, identified as David Warren, 68, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
A preliminary investigation revealed that the vehicle was driving eastbound on State Road 38 when it exited the roadway, crossed into the oncoming westbound traffic lane and struck a tree. The vehicle had traveled for approximately 250 feet before crashing into the tree.
HCSO said the driver may have been experiencing a medical emergency during the incident.’
‘Manchester Police Sergeant Peter Marr and Officer Victoria Catano observed a man subject suffering from an unknown medical condition at 8:45 a.m. inside of the front lobby at police headquarters.
Officer Victoria Catano and Sergeant Marr noticed the man, 51, seated in a chair. They noticed he seemed pale in color and looked as if he may have been sleeping, so they checked his pulse. They were unable to locate a pulse, so they sprang into action and started emergency CPR.’ [Emphasis added]
“A man subject.” Lol.
‘AMR arrived a short time later and transported the man to a local hospital where he was treated for a possible heart issue.’ [Emphasis added]
Let’s hope he makes it.
I guess Knoebels is an amusement park. Not much information about what happened here.
‘A male was found unresponsive at a pool at Knoebels on Sunday.
The man was at the Crystal Pool and found by a lifeguard that initiated emergency care, according to a public relations director at the amusement park.
The Knoebels EMS team performed additional care and the male was taken to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.
"The Knoebels family is praying for the best possible outcome. We ask that everyone joins us in keeping the guest and his family in your prayers."
No additional information is being released at this time.’ [Emphasis added]
