| Wednesday, September 2, 2009


OOLOGAH--OTEMS medics recently encountered one of the tiniest patients they ve ever treated.



Paramedic Susan Baker and EMT Bonnie Scott scooped up the almost lifeless victim and did everything they could to revive her. Because of their heroic efforts, their tiny patient survived and soared out of the station.



The fact that the patient was a hummingbird never slowed the pair down.



Any way you look at it, it s a life saved and that s what we re there for, Baker said. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.



This shows where the hearts of the OTEMS medics lie. They truly care about what they do and who they serve, even the smallest of the District s inhabitants. We want the community to know just how dedicated our medics are, said Kelly Deal, OTEMS operations director.



The case began when Baker and Scott were washing their ambulance about 10 a.m. Monday at the Oologah-Talala Emergency Services District station in downtown Oologah.
