Paramedic driving patient requires overdose rescue
An Ohio firefighter-paramedic driving an overdose patient to the hospital needed rescue himself.
Fairborn Fire Department officials say the man wasn’t seeing or feeling right Thursday evening, so his partner jumped to the front to stop the ambulance. The partner then administered the overdose-reversing drug naloxone, and drove the firefighter-paramedic and the woman they had been transporting to a hospital in southwestern Ohio.
Authorities say both recovered. They haven’t released their names. Fairborn Police Capt.
Terry Bennington says the woman who overdosed could face charges.
