Thursday, July 13 11:09 a.m. -- Baywatch was called by a camp outside Avalon where a person was reporting symptoms after SCUBA diving. The patient, a 21-year-old woman, was experiencing tingling in one of her arms after diving on com- pressed air. She was brought aboard Baywatch and taken to the hyperbaric chamber at the Isthmus for evaluation by a dive physician and potential treatment. 3:17 p.m. - Rescue 4 and Baywatch were called to assist a person injured in a fall. The patient, a 26-year-old woman, injured her ankle following a trip and fall. She was ,splinted and taken to CIMC in AFD Rescue 4. 4:45 p.m. -- Rescue 4 and Baywatch were called to the Mole for a report of a person feeling exhausted. The patient, a 49-year- old man, was nauseated and likely dehydrated after being in the sun for too long. He refused treatment or transport and was released. 7:34 p.m. -- Rescue 4 and Baywatch were called to a home for a report of a sick child. The patient, a 10-month-old child, was unable to keep formula down and was in danger of'becoming dehy- drated. She was taken to CIMC in AFD Rescue 4 to be evaluated by a physician.

A 15-year-old girl was assessed and treated for head trauma. The patient was transport- ed to Avalon Hospital. The following appeared in the Avalon Community Church bulletin ACC Anti-Gossip News Flash! NO It was not a truck or tour bus. He was not life-flighted over town. He did not succeed in keep- ing his coffee in the cup, nor the chairs in his hand. The warm liquid all over him was not blood. The golf cart did not land on or run over him. The driver was not Donna Denning. Brigette was not mad about the iPod raffle winner, she just wanted some attention! NOW FOR THE FACTS: On July 4th, at about 8:45 p.m. our own Scott Schmeckpeper was thinking of how lovely the fireworks would be that evening as they exploded in the night sky. As he crossed Beacon Street with two folding chairs and a 'really good' cup of coffee "BAMM!" He saw "stars & stripes" all right, but not quite the kind he had envisioned the kind you get when you're flying through the windshield of a golf cart! Our lovely church secretary, Brigette Crawford, was coming down from the top of Metropole, after stopping at the stop sign and giving Trudy Saldana a friendly wave, she rounds the comer head- ing down Beacon Street to Sumn- cr. Our hero, Scott, dressed in dark clothing on a dark street, was about 15 feet ahead of the lovely Brigette, as she came down the hill. No sooner had she turned her head forward, then Scott's rather substantial form broke through her windshield shouting "I'm OK, I'm OK " all the way to the pave- ment ! Quick on the scene, Avalon Fire Department, including the intrepid Dave Long (forced to endure Scott's jokes while trying to affix a neck brace), soon had Scott trussed up to the backboard and off to the emergency room. And the diagnosis? A few minor cuts and bruises, a sore muscle or two, and a very good God!
