EMTs responding to a medical emergency involving a pregnant woman who was bleeding heavily were greatly moved by a thank-you note written by the woman’s seven-year-old boy.

Nantou County Fire Department’s Jhushan branch responded to a medical emergency that called for EMTs to escort a pregnant woman who was bleeding heavily to hospital. According to the technicians who took on the mission, the woman was with a seven-year-old boy at home when they arrived. The boy helped put his mother’s baggage and slippers onto the ambulance and then sat docilely beside his mother, the EMTs said.

As the EMTs were concerned that medical situations calling for first aid might arise during the transport, they brought the boy to sit in the front seat, and the boy told his mother he was going to sit in the front and not to worry about him, according to the team.

The boy silently took out a pen and paper, which the technicians said they didn’t pay attention to as they thought he was engaged in some senseless doodling.    [FULL  STORY]
