Breaking News In Salisbury

Salisbury EMS and Station 2 dispatched to Bed Bath and Beyond for a non breathing subject as a result of a hanging. Paramedic A74 dispatched for the ambulance because Salisbury had none available.

Now advising the subject is behind the building in the back about 15ft up a tree

Assistant Chief 1 responding and engine 2 establishing command. Advises it's a priority 4

Lighten up people! I heard it was a young lady.

Priority 4 means no medical care given. Has two meanings. One like a stubbed toe and medic didn't do anything or a person has expired and a medic didn't do anything.

Its a sad day when this happens. Even worse if a young person does this on valentines day. So much more love out there then what one thinks is lost.

If it was a young lady I am wondering if it was an employee of Bed, Bath and Beyond.

I wonder if an employee went out back to dump trash in the dumpster and saw this.

Someone Who Still Cares About People said...

I am not here to judge anyone by no means...But before anyone on here makes any assumptions about who it is or whether they are male or female, why don't you let the police and the crime scene(forensics) do their job and process it. They have not released any information as of yet as they are still there processing the scene. I am sure that as soon as Joe knows any information about the incident, he will let everyone know. The way the times are becoming, I am sure this is not the first nor the last we will ever hear of something like this happening. People are losing their jobs, getting their hours cut, having to obtain health insurance when they can't even afford to pay their rent. Yes there are some people who use and abuse the welfare system, just as there are people who commit crimes everyday. We are all human and mistakes are made everyday by everyone. Just remember as you are posting your comments, that this person could be someone's mother, father, brother, sister, friend or any other family member to them, as they may be following Joe's blog for information as well. That is what is wrong with people today. People speak without thinking about what damage can be done. What we all need to be doing is praying for the person and for their family.

2:32......I know who the FOOL is and it's YOU. Having spent many years as a paramedic, I can tell you that your statement is terribly incorrect. "Priority 4" means, literally, no medical care necessary. Of course, that can mean a myriad of things. "DOA" means, literally, dead on arrival. Usually that means 'arrival at the hospital', not arrival of the EMS crew. And, an unresponsive, non-viable patient doesn't mean the "person died hours ago". Actually under Maryland protocols, there is a strict list of when a person can be considered non-viable and some can include death only minutes ago. It depends on the given situation. So as far as a "FOOL", I believe you fit that classification quite well. Now, how about YOU get your facts straight. If you're an EMS provider, you need to study your protocol book again. If you're not an EMS provider, take an EMT class so you'll really know what to do and not to do. And to the victim and her family, my prayers are with you in this tragic time.

In response to 2:51 I offer this poem.

Desiderata (1927)
by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Priority 4 is used when a patient is DOA. I don't care what the technical term is that's what we use it as around here in the field. And I have confirmation from someone who was on scene it was a male who died from the hanging in a tree. Let's not spread rumors just cuz people says they "heard" something.

I can understand a person's wish to end his or her life by suicide, but why the public display? This person was very troubled and wanted to make a statement.

I pray for the family of this poor woman who will have to receive the most horrible news any mother or father could receive. Or possibly a child receives this news that her mother was hanging from a tree. Unless you have lived this nightmare you cannot know the loss ...the pain...the heartache...or ask yourself what if? It is easy to spout off about something you know nothing about but the gut pain is made worse by these comments. Please know that this is someones child...possibly wife....possibly mother. Please be kind.

I have read all of these comments, and I thank God that you people (obviously) have never seen such a tragedy, rather it be hearing about a friend, a family member or personally seeing someone do this (police officers, EMTs, paramedics, firefighters) because if you had, you wouldn't be talking like this. Instead of making childish comments about who it is, how it happened, why it happened or if the person deserved it or not why don't you think about the people involved and pray for them or at the very least keep your mouth shut..... Think about the friends and family that will get this news, and may or may not see your nasty comments on here....Think about the law enforcement officers, the ambulance crews and the firefighters that had to LOOK at this, that's not something easy to see. I think it's very disrespectful to ANYONE to read comments like the ones you people have made.

Maryland Priority 4 designates a patient not requiring medical attention.

No patient contact or uninjured are both priority 4 along with a Doa falling in same group

Dennis Smith said...

From page 29 of your miemss MD protocol book-
d) Priority 4 — Does not require medical attention.

It doesn't mean dead, it means "does not require medical attention". Any provider who says it automatically means "dead", and wastes his or her time arguing about it is an idiot and needs to read their protocol book a bit more. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get back on my $500,000 rig and head to Wendy's, there's a Frosty with my name on it!

Joe you can really get people going! Lol! By the way Happy Anniversary! You got the best woman out there when you married Jennifer! Now, back to the story, I am sure the coroner will have the answer on cause of death. Suicide is so very hard on the people the victim has left behind, so many unanswered questions that you will never get the answers to. My heart weeps for the people this person has left behind. This person is a victim, as he was fighting demons in his mind to commit suicide! I hope peace will come quickly for all involved!

My fiancé, my children and I witnessed the body (which appeared to be a male wearing a black boggie, a navy/black jacket, and white shoes) hanging from the tree yesterday. We were saddened to see this. (i'm only giving a description because we are still unsure of who the victim was and maybe someone remember their loved one wearing something similar yesterday) My first instinct was NOT to judge but call all of my family that lives in the area to make sure that everyone was accounted for. I have read the previous posts and is saddened to all of the IGNORANCE displayed. The victim appeared to be younger in age (maybe highschool/college age). In life were are dealt with many ups and downs. We all deal with things differently. I am floored by all of the NEGATIVITY and sidebar/involvement of other ad their names. I find it very INCONSIDERATE for the family that has lost a loved one. This could have happened to any one of our family members. PLEASE have some type of resect for the unidentified! Instead of being so JUDGEMENTAL....pray. To the BEREAVED FAMILY...I pray for your peace and strength in your time of loss. R.I.P. gentleman.

Retired maybe. Love the hate of our ems. First its Salisbury Fire. Now its the medics. If its a volunteer company someone has to mouth off. You people hate the fire and ems personnel . why? Ask yourselves that! Why hate and disrespect the people who sacrifice so much for you. Not just their physical lives but time away from family and lack of sleep and countless hours training.all for strangers and the community. Mostly a nice meal at the end of the year is all they get. And they work and lay for that themselves. Think about that and thank a firefighter or medic next time you see him or her.

Hey Doucebag we will stop worrying about Nick Parks when he stops making a spectacle out of himself by breaking the law. You must be related to the heroin addict. Sign your name next time.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone heard anymore? Some of you people have no sympathy. It doesn't matter whether the person was male or female, young or old, suicide or murder, Nick Parks or John Doe. They are dead. THAT'S where the concern should be. If it was suicide, I feel bad life could have been bad enough to take their own. Not unheard of though. Murder? Hopefully catch the person and hang them back. Nick Parks, while I don't like what he does, it would all the complaints he gets. He could do better for himself. Whichever it was, you don't know the circumstances. It's sad under any circumstance.

Anonymous said...

A Priority 4 in many cases means a dead person. Someone who obviously won't be resuscitated and we have used that term exclusively for a dead person of a DOA. I don't care about your technical bullshit you found in the MIEMMS protocol book. All you are doing is proving that you are nothing but a text book EMT at best and no one is impressed. Go pound your puddin and get over yourself because no one on here cares about what you have to say.

Thank you for letting us know what is going on Joe.

Just happened into this comment site after checking in on Breaking News in Salisbury. After glancing through some of the comments I began to chuckle then my chuckles turned to complete disbelief. Are you people for real?? Is this REALLY a site from real human beings?? one know it all argues it was a different gender. One out and out names a "beggar" almost wishing it was him o4 some other "no account". Then the big argument comes when there is a dispute about what a certain code means and that brings on the name calling. Do your parents or guardians know you are on the computer? You all sound like you're about 12 years old! And to top it all off, everybody is anonymous!!!! Are you that ashamed of what you're posting??? I understand opinions but these are not. I think most of these are from those yapping just to hear their heads rattle.
