Stranger Saved My Brother’s Life
My brother was prescribed a bad cocktail of anxiety drugs that took him for a massive loop. Last Thursday, September 28, while in a stupor from the massive (prescribed!) doses of the medicine, he overdosed in a suicide attempt.
Someone on the West End, perhaps near the Misercordia, saved his life by calling an ambulance. They did not wait until he was on the ground. They called the ambulance before he stopped breathing… and as a result, he was in the hands of paramedics before he stopped breathing.
He did go into a coma and require a ventilator but here’s the thing. He suffered no brain death because he was caught by medical professionals in time… he is now awake and walking/eating again.
First of all, I would like to than the medical staff at the Misercordia ICU as well as the paramedics.. But the one thing we can’t seem to figure out is who called the ambulance.
I just want to say THANK YOU, KIND STRANGER!! YOU SAVED A LIFE THAT DAY AND YOU PROBABLY DON’T EVEN KNOW IT!! By not ignoring someone who, perhaps, looked threatening… and by not waiting until they were down on the ground to call the ambulance…. he will live! I wish I could find you, look you in the eyes, and hug you… but it looks like you’ll just be the angel we will never know.
THANKS EVERYONE… what an AMAZING team of people.. all the stars aligned and my brother lived. <3
