Woman hyperventilates & seizes

Original post made by SR, Mountain View, on Jul 8, 2008

A woman hyperventilated and seized at the entrance to the Stevens Creek Trail on El Camino Sunday. We stopped to help and would like to know how things turned out for her. She was with her husband and son. We just stayed until paramedics arrived.

Call the paramedics or the hospital. Why write to this forum?

Find out yourself - do you really think that the paramedics or the hospital would release this information to a total stranger who tried to be a good citizen by helping the woman in distress? The privacy laws will kick in instantly ..

Thanks for stopping to help this person having a medical problem in public. However, it is true privacy kicks in at this point. Your reward is knowing you did the correct thing in helping another.
