"The story about a man who had epilepsy"

About: East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as other),

The man fell to the ground started to shake and let the foam from his mouth. Then he began to choke. I quickly ran up to him. Turned him on his side. Then my hands took out the foam from his mouth. At this point a passer by called an ambulance which arrived within 2 minutes. I helped a man unknown to me not to suffocate.

Dear Smile61

I’m sure the patient was grateful that you were nearby when this happened and were willing the help – It’s good to hear that our crews were able to get there quickly when they were needed.
