EMT SUSPENDED For Doing The Right Thing Instead Of Looking The Other Way

When an EMT working for a private ambulance company was flagged down by a man who said a 7-year-old girl was choking to death, his partner told the man that they were too busy to help. But Qwasi Reid decided to do what was right.

According to Fox 5 NY, Reid and his partner were in the midst of a non-emergency medical transportation when Reid leaped out of the ambulance and rushed to help the choking girl at a nearby school.

When he reached her, she was already turning blue and no one at the school was trying to help. He rendered first aid, keeping her alive until she could be brought to a hospital. The girl is on life-support and considered brain-dead, but her family is holding onto hope that she will recover.

For his efforts, Reid was suspended without pay. He says it was because he violated company policy by making a medical stop without being called to it. Is he sorry for what he did?

"I don't regret it," Reid said. "I'd do it again. If I know there's a child choking, I'm going to do my best to help her."

A GoFundMe page has been setup to help Reid financially while he's out of work.
