Sacramento Police Aid Firefighters on Call

Sacramento firefighter medics had to call upon police when an unruly crowd prevented them from assisting a patient, reports The Sacramento Bee.

Sacramento Fire Department personnel responded to a home in the Noralto neighborhood about 9:45 p.m. Sunday for a call about a person who had stopped breathing.

Once firefighters arrived, a hostile group of seven to 10 people greeted them and prevented paramedics from getting into the apartment to render aid, according to a police activity log.

At one point, a children’s scooter was tossed at fire personnel. Firefighters summoned police but arriving officers were initially blocked from the apartment when a wrought iron fence door was locked.

Officers were forced to scale the fence to provide protective cover for fire personnel, according to the police log. The patient was eventually transported to the hospital.
