Woman Feeling Unwell on Highway is Given Heart-warming Acupuncture Treatment by First-aiders.
China news, July 26(Reporter: Xu Maili, Intern: Yang Lidong, Zhang Yi ) Mrs Ji felt not well when driving on the highway. Emergency workers arrived to help as soon as possible after Mrs Ji pull over her car and called 120 for help. She soon recovered, but out of concerning, the first-aiders didn’t leave until her family arrived. Yesterday, Mrs Ji sent a silk flag to the Huafei station of Taiyuan 120 emergency Center to express her gratitude.
In the afternoon of July 18, Mrs Ji suddenly felt her limbs numbed and had breathing difficulty when she drove by Jincite grand Bridge on Beijing-Kunming expressway on her way back to Taiyuan from Jinzhong. Feeling not right, she immediately pulled over the car. Then she realised that the situation was getting worse, because she couldn’t move her tongue and her fingers started to twitch. In grave panic, she managed to call 120 on her phone.
Receiving the emergency call, the nearest first-aid Center Huafei station sent out an ambulance. Dr Guo Lifeng, nurse Liang Xiaofang and driver He Yougen got in touch with Mrs Ji and confirmed her location again and again. Mrs Ji said she thought she was dying while waiting for the ambulance and finally calmed down when she heard the ambulance sirens.
Mrs Ji said, Dr Guo Lifeng rushed to her as soon as the ambulance arrived. She told Dr Guo that there probably be some problems with her heart. Dr Guo pressed her armpit and asked if she felt numb, and then made the conclusion that her heart was working fine. The first aiders kept doing a series of therapies like acupuncture and massage to her hand, for she couldn’t move her convulsive fingers. After Mrs Ji regained consciousness and were able to walk by herself, the three emergency workers took her to the ambulance to make further examination. They told her she would recover after taking some rest, and suggested taking her to hospital. But out of her personal business, she refused the offer.
Mrs Ji said the three medical staffs didn’t leave her immediately after the diagnosis. Instead, they kept her company for about half an hour when her family came. At that time, Mrs Ji had almost no symptoms. Dr Guo exhorted her families again and again to take her to hospital before they went back to the emergency station.
Comforting her, inspiring her and accompanying her, they are not her families, but they are more than her families. Their heart-warming acts deeply touched Mrs Ji. She brought a silk flag said “great heart, great skill, heal the wounded and rescue the dying with both benevolence and profession” and a letter of thanks to the Huafei station of Taiyuan 120 emergency Center to express her gratitude. She wrote in the letter: “The first experience in my life that seeking for emergency treatment makes me deeply impressed by the first-aid doctors’s noble moral integrity that putting saving lives to the first place, and empathising with patience’s feelings, warming patience’s heart by their heart.
