EMT’s are a critical part of maintaining healthy communities and extending a hand to those in crisis. But sometimes, the EMT’s themselves need help…
Fortunately, in this case, the EMT in trouble was in the presence of a skilled partner who recognized what was happening and acted appropriately:

This is a great example of situational awareness, reacting swiftly and saving a life. We salute Ray Berwick, it’s men and women like him who walk the thin line between chaos and order.
