day would offer a real-life test. As Carla Berkowitz walked up to classmates Jessica Quaggin-Smith and Max Kazer on Monday afternoon at Lake Shore Park, not far from Northwestern Memorial Hospital, she noticed a shirtless man in gym shorts and black sneakers leaning back on a nearby bench with his head tilted back. "He looked really uncomfortable. His mouth was open and he was just in a really awkward position. Something didn 't look right, didn 't feel right to me," said Berkowitz, 23, who lives in the Gold Coast. The trio, students at Northwestern University 's Feinberg School of Medicine, rushed over to him. They said they saw that the man 's eyes were glazed, his lips a bluish color and his skin was pale. He appeared unconscious. Quaggin-Smith, 22, checked for the man 's pulse but couldn 't feel one. "It kicked me into …show more content…
"It was a mixed feeling because on the one hand I was 100 percent sure I was doing the right thing in addressing it and being there, being the one to step in. But on the other hand, how well-trained am I? How qualified am I? Am I going to make the situation worse in some way?" Kazer said. But, he said, he relied on his training as a crowd gathered around them. "In every stage in our career, we 're going to have moments like that and you can 't be taken by fear and you have to know that you 're able to do this," he said. A bystander, Sharyl Mackey, called 911. She was in the park with her children, and her 5-year-old son had kicked a soccer ball over to the man, who had playfully thrown it back a few times before running another lap. When the man returned, he collapsed on the bench, she said. Mackey said she got up to check on him, noticed he wasn 't breathing and yelled for help. Already, the three students were heading in that direction. "I was just praying that help would come quickly," said Mackey, 41, of Streeterville.

He was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital where Janice Cole, one of the doctors employed there and his prison doctor, attempted to stabilize him. However, doctors later pronounced him dead when attempts to resuscitate him failed. Soon after, he spontaneously "auto-resuscitated" in one of the doctors described as "The Lazarus Effect. " It was at this time that, amidst the Monday morning mayhem, he managed to change into the attire of a hospital employee. Under the guise of a doctor, he absconded the hospital and began, or rather resumed, his manic killing spree.
He stated, “When I arrived at the scene I noticed that patrons were quickly leaving the restaurant. Once inside I could see that they were clearly shaken. As I scanned the room I noticed a body lying on the floor near the back.” McCormick later states that he was “unable to revive the victim. He had no pulse and had already lost a substantial amount of blood.”
He immediately turned his car around and went back to help. As he arrived to the scene he noticed no one was aiding the victim. Someone was on the phone with 911 and another person was standing nearby. Kneeling down next to the victim, with cars moving swiftly by, he immediately started to help.
All of the emotions, stress, and physical exhaustion caused him to black out, collapse, and become very ill. As he said before
On October 21, 2015 at 1036 hours, I responded to the Haddon View South building, apartment 110 for a report of a discovered unconscious elderly male suspected of being deceased. Upon my arrival with the Westmont Ambulance Squad, I met with James Obrecht of maintence, and Ms. Belinda Burroughs of Gerald Home Care. Ms. Burroughs related that she notified maintence when she arrived on location and received no answer at Mr. Joseph Dunn’s apartment door.

His head still hurt but not as bad when he got in the nurse 's office there was 1 other kid in there his teacher told the nurse what happened showed him where to sit and left. The nurse ask George his name and what grade he was in. Then she asked him if he knew where he was or what happened. George knew where he was but all he knew about what happened is he was walking and he ended up on the ground. She looked at him for awhile and said he looked fine so he could go back to class.
For this reason, he served a 17-month prisoner’s sentence fulfilled with hard labour. After the release, the university student was evacuated to the University of Cincinnati Medical Centre, where doctors quickly discovered that he had suffered from “severe injuries to all regions of the brain” and was in
“Suddenly he was jerked backwards and flung on the ground….Still but for a man breathing heavily, breathing heavily and staggering. I thought he went to the tree and leaned against it. He coughed violently, a sobbing bone shaking cough.” (Lee 351).
I assume, he was nervous. I felt him because anyone who says they have never been afraid while diving hasn’t been diving or is a bad liar. Meanwhile, the other person was very quiet that we didn’t know whether he was OK or not. (I imitating the conversation between our instructor and the student) “Are you hungry? Are you sleepy?
I could not find him and I immediately went looking for him. I asked the nurse if she saw the patient and she said that she saw him by the elevators about 5 minutes ago. I went by there and I did not see him. I immediately went to Monique and told her that the patient left the floor. She called security and they started a search party.
