There I was, purchasing fishing equipment. I was standing in check out, bagging my stuff, when one of the shoppers yelled “Call 9-1-1!” She did not tell me in particular to use my phone, so I did not call anyone.
In CPR class, during Emergency Preparedness, I was carefully instructed to point to one specific person in the crowd and tell them to call 9-1-1, so your request does not go ignored by everyone.
The problem was a middle-aged lady in medical need laying on her back near the coffee shop. The shopper who was rescuing her asked if anyone had a Blood Pressure Cuff. I stepped over and said, “If she is diabetic, I have sugar.” The shopper then asked the lady if she were diabetic. She admitted that she was diabetic and said that she had not eaten anything today. The shopper asked for some orange juice from the coffee shop. The orange juice was supplied.
As we were leaving, the ambulance arrived.
