Qwasie Reid an EMT, working for the company Assist Ambulance was suspended. What for you might ask. Helping a chocking helpless little girl. Yes, you read it correctly.
Reid and his partner were transporting a patient to a doctor’s appointment when they were alerted of the incident. A man approached them, informing the two of the situation. Reid responded quickly performing CPR until more help arrived.
Mr. Reid you’re exactly right you have done nothing wrong. If he did not help this young girl as much as he could, her family wouldn’t have any hope left. The young girl would have died on the scene. Although she is brain dead and on life support, she would be alive if not for Mr.Reid. Then Assist Ambulance because it’s against policy. Please fix your policy. Reid and his partner were transporting the patient to a doctor’s appointment not the emergency. This man should not be out of a job for helping a chocking helpless young girl.
