(in the ems bunch)

But this morning I want to highlight, and reprint here on the main page, a pair of comments that deserve a larger audience than they might find among comment thread curiosity seekers.
The first, from a reader who goes by DBROL, shares a similarly disturbing, but (thankfully) more happily ended, story:
I fear this happens more than we realize. Two summers ago, while suffering from Congestive Heart Failure, medics forced me to walk a city block to the ambulance.
