Paramedics find toddler, unconscious father, drugs within reach

-A A +A
By Kayla Vaughn

This is a story about an EMS crew, an unconscious dad, an open bag of white powder and a precocious 3-year-old dialing 911.
It’s midday Saturday, June 9. Sirens scream at passing cars as paramedics make their way to Barker Lane, off S.C. 200 just south of Airport Crossroads. Most of the cars ahead of the ambulance don’t pull over as it approaches, slowing the trip.
It’s a routine call, a diabetic with low blood sugar. Two vehicles respond, one with three paramedics and the other with a supervisor and a reporter invited to ride along for a shift.
