This is one of the more concerning paranormal actities that I have witnessed as a paramedic. We were called to a child who appeared hysterical and was waving his arms but not talking to anyone. When we arrived, the child (about 4 years old), asian background, was in the middle of the stree and waving his arms about suggesting that we follow him. I tried to get him to sit down so that we could talk, but he wouldn’t listen and started to run off down the street. No one around said that they had ever seen him before or new where his parents were.
We followed him down the street (in our ambulance) and eventually he reached a house and ran around the back of it. We parked the Ambulance and started to walk towards the house. The back door was still half open and we saw the child running up the stairs. We notified dispatch of our location and what was going on, and advised that we were entering the house. Something seemed wrong – and I wasn’t sure what it was yet and had an eery feeling that something was wrong and unsafe… I wanted to get out of the house and call for police, but…then again… that would have been foolish – I mean, it was only a small child, right?
I follow up the stairs and state several times loud and clear “Ambulance, has someone called an Ambulance?”
As I walk up the stairs all three doors are closed – now I’m certain that the child is playing a game, or setting us up… for something…
I start to yell again, “Ambulance… is anyone here…”
“Hey kid… where are you? Its the paramedics… ”
I cautiously open the door, not certain of what I might find… an empty room.
I open the next one, it leads to a dark corridor, followed by a bedroom – I walk in…. when I reach the opening to the room, I find a women in her mid thirties (asian, appears to be the child’s mother), unconscious – I check for a pulse – only a carotid present. I call for my partner… and we place our monitor on her chest to check her heart rhythym – she’s in a condition called Ventricular Tachycardia – because she is young, she has enough strength in her heart to maintain this rhythym (but not for very long) – we make the decision, to treat her as though she is in a cardiac arrest, and we deffibrilate her.
Nothing – she’s still in VT.
We charge up the machine and shock again.
This time there’s a long pause (almost like assytole) and then, a normal rhythym returns.
She becomes conscious (wow, I actually got to save someone’s life!).
We start to get her ready to go to hospital and my partner starts to look for her child – he’s no where to be found.
I ask the mother about her son – she becomes frantic and starts to cry – “Why do you say this thing?”
Eventually calms down and we continue to search for her child. I tell her that she’s lucky to be alive and that she owes it to her son… She gets much more angry this time…
I try and get her to calm down and ask her what’s wrong…
“My child was murdered 5 years ago!”
He was her only child and she had never had children since…
