Heart attack South Lake

Report of man down on trail with severe chest pain and known heart condition.

Thankfully he was only a few miles up the trail and the local ambulance company was willing to help they actually got to the PT just before us so we loaded him on our litter and brought him out while the paramedics handled the patients medical needs. It was a good thing they came as we are prohibited from administering the medications they used and we do not have a 12 lead, which did show he was indeed having heart problems.

Local ambulance and Wilderness Fire crews were invaluable this mission many thanks to all as his life was saved.
