EMTs treat woman eat­ing raw meat in store

The Standard Journal - - POLICE -

A lo­cal woman just couldn’t wait to eat on a Satur­day night, Nov. 15.

Po­lice and med­i­cal per­son­nel went to a Cedartown gro­cery store on Nov. 15 to pro­vide help for a woman eat­ing raw meat in the check­out line, ac­cord­ing to city po­lice re­ports.

Cedartown Po­lice Depart­ment re­ports state of­fi­cers were called to Penny Pinch­ers around 9:45 p.m. to as­sist the woman.

The 62-year-old woman, who was us­ing an elec­tric wheel­chair, was wait­ing to pay for her gro­ceries when she pulled out some sea­son­ing and be­gan to sea­son the raw ground meat she was plan­ning on pur­chas­ing.

Of­fi­cers iden­ti­fied a med­i­cal is­sue and called for emer­gency med­i­cal per­son­nel, who treated her at the scene.

Med­i­cal work­ers de­ter­mined a trip to the emer­gency room wasn’t nec­es­sary, so they trans­ported her home.

The woman wasn’t charged in the in­ci­dent.
