Unexpected excitement.

Well. I didn't see that coming.

About half an hour, forty-five minutes ago, I was preparing a fax when I heard a noise like a cat throwing up. At first I thought it was a child starting to cry, but then I realized it was a man sitting at one of the law library tables going into a seizure.

Several students were gathering around the man, so I ran for the circulation desk and the assistant circ supervisor, who handed me the phone and went to help. I gave the 911 dispatcher our address and what details I knew (by being on the phone, I was some distance away).

I heard someone say the response time was slower due to a reduced crew for the summer. The paramedics -- I don't know how long it took them to get here, time just was out of whack.

One of the other students said the man was clutching his left side, so Jason (from circulation) and I suspect heart attack. He never lost consciousness, and is at the Emory emergency room now.

Jason told me I did good. I was just panicking -- I don't know much first aid. I hope he's okay.
