Brad: Are you all right?
Lydia: What...what happened?
Brad: You lost consciousness and someone called 911. My name is Brad and I’m a paramedic. Can you answer a few questions for me?
Lydia: I’ll try.
Brad: Have you ever blacked out before?
Lydia: No, I don’t think so.
Brad: Do you have a history of medical problems? Do you have any allergies to medication?
Lydia: Not that I know of.
Brad: Okay. Where are you hurt? Are you in any pain?

Brad: Stay calm and let me examine the wound.
Lydia: Oh my God, I’m going to bleed to death!

Lydia: Calm? How can I stay calm when I’m bleeding to death? I need a helicopter to take me to the hospital right away. Call medivac!
Brad: Ma’am, you don’t need a helicopter. I’m just going to give you a little injection to help you with the pain and to help you relax.
Lydia: I’m going to die...I’m going to...
