Wow! And it’s just a beginning. How about this from a couple of EMS technicians who were there:

Their story is a staggering accusation, but I’m sadly having no trouble believing what they say. This story needs wide distribution and discussion.

This deserves its own thread! You should go ahead and post it at the top level. If you don’t, I will.

Please go ahead. I’m not yet ready to create a thread, but feel free to do so.

Just did it. I focussed on the main website instead of that particular article. There is a lot of information on that website, especially since there was a convention of EMS professionals. That was a happy surprise to me. I’m sure having that serendipitous medical assistance on hand saved some lives that would otherwise have been lost.

On a side note, I’m sure that many people would reflexively give the credit to some deity or other. But an honest person will have to admit that the real reason they were there is because New Orleans is such a party town. We can thank liquor, lust and gluttony, not to mention the “devil” music (good old sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll) for the good fortune of having them there.
