New York Paramedic Stabbed with Needle by Patient

first_imgTROY, New York (WNYT) – What began as a routine medical call at a Hannaford parking lot in Troy soon turned into a scary situation according to Troy Fire Chief Tom Garett. “Upon arrival we had an individual who had taken a heroin overdose, firefighters who are also trained as paramedics were able to get him inside of an ambulance and treat the man with a narcan which reverses the heroin overdose,” said Garett. “They were successful, but he became combative. He stabbed one of our paramedics with a needle or lancet.”last_img
