Well I've had gross, horrific, and strange..but this takes the cake on dumb/funny. Last night we (Paramedic truck) responded to an "unresponsive male, no answer to phone" call as Advanced Life Support to assist a Basic Life Support truck (volunteer ambulance). We arrive at the same time and gain entrance the residence. Enter the patient's room. Guy had hung himself. Obvious mortality..while my partner and I are looking around the room for Id/note..the BLS crew cuts him down..we tell them this is now a crime scene and they shouldn't have cut the patient down. I take the equipment we brought in back to the truck, stow it, and get paperwork needed, My partner goes to the front room to console the family that had shown up/call the coroner/talk to police. BLS crew strings the guy back up, unbeknownst to us. Coroner gets there..we talk, tell him what happened, follow him to the room.."Hey, I thought you said he was cut down." says the coroner. My partner and I said "what?" as we entered the room. "We figured we could reconstruct the crime scene" said the BLS captain....long night to say the least.
