Isn't it amazing how beautiful much love human have for each other? :first:

It might have been an average occurrence for Engine 5 of the Rochester Fire Department but for the wildly cheering crowd.

Emergency personnel ran across the road from the fire house after a man slammed his vehicle into a utility pole suffering a heart attack while driving.

When bystanders pulled him out of the car, 58-year-old Artie Frisbee looked purple and had stopped breathing.

As the trained crew went to work pumping on his chest, the crowd grew and began cheering for Artie to come back to life and for Engine 5 to pull out a big rescue.


"Engine five can do it!" :director:

Neighborhood residents know the firehouse by name because the station is threatened by budget cuts. Artie Frisbee visited the firehouse a few days later, grateful the men were there to answer the urgent call for help.

The video was shared with permission of all parties and ended when an official asked him to stop recording.

Thanks for this. We really need to be reminded that human beings are for the most part a compassionate, kind, loving species. We sometimes focus so much on trying to understand the behind the scenes manipulation of our planet by a few psychopaths, that we loose sight of the essentially good nature that is inherent to humans, and that we all try to cultivate in each other.

Even from afar the love and kindred is palpable very moving 2.30minutes of hope and joy.

Hey, sorry for the cynicism, but this isn't "love and kindred". It's a bunch of bored folks who thought they'd just stumbled onto the set of ER.

Just as well Engine 5 can concentrate with a baseball crowd screaming in their ears.

Only in the US :rolleyes:
