On the Scene
High risk or not, the delivery was now in the hands of not a fully staffed delivery room, but a very experienced Paramedic. Fortunately, this was something that most Paramedics really love to. As much death as they have to face, childbirth is a very rewarding change of pace. Kevin Wright had delivered over 20 babies in the field and had not lost a mother, child or father in his 18 years of medical service.
"!Apresurar, apresurar ahora," he ordered and the baby escaped its former home and entered his new world kicking and crying.
The delivery marked the twentieth such delivery Paramedic Kevin Wright had performed in his career as a paramedic. Most were simple as this one had been, others had been more difficult, but he had brought life into the world and that was a stark contrast to the life and death situations he normally faced.
To deal with the stress of his job, our lead character loves to work on his aging Corvette, practice karate and country western dance. He also takes great pride in his two daughters as they dream of becoming Olympic gymnasts.
