Went to work at 6pm last night....did my usual...went in service...stopped at the local gas station and got the biggest Dr. Pepper they carry....and dropped into the office to see what was new on the bulletin board. As soon as I walk out the door get a call from Lubbock Dispatch...Code 3...Assist EMS.....20 month old male not breathing!!!!
HOLY CRAP!!!! Lights, siren, and a near accident getting to the scene (they just chip sealed and Avenue E is covered in loose gravel...meant to go north and almost wound up going south). Get on scene...find a very distraught mother and a child who was thankfully screaming his lungs out. It seems that the child pitched a fit and was so upset he got locked up in mid scream and couldn't breath....went unconscious momentarily and his body took over and he got some wind in him. Glad it worked out the way it did......the alternative was unthinkable. I hate it when the day starts with a call like that!!!!
