Taylor Airola, EMT



EMSA Oklahoma

EMSA Paramedic, Rick Bigger, and his partner Taylor Airola responded to a motorcycle accident last week. The kindness that Taylor showed afterwards caused Rick to retell their humbling story. Unfortunately, Rick had to cut the patient's boot off to examine her broken ankle. On the way to the hospital, the patient talked of escaping an abusive relationship and living in a shelter. The boots the patient wore had been given to her by her daughter the day before the wreck. Rick and Taylor got their patient checked in and then Taylor retreated to the ambulance while Rick completed paperwork. When Rick returned to the truck, he found Taylor sewing up the patient's boot with a kit she had bought at the drug store across the street from the hospital. It was a great act of kindness and showed incredibly care and initiative. Way to go Taylor!
