- IT'S OMAR'S FIRST DAYAS A PARAMEDIC...

- HEY THERE!

- IN THIS TOWN.

HE HAD BEEN FIREDFOR INCOMPETENCE

IN THREE OTHER CITIESAROUND MISSOURI,

BUT SOMEHOW MANAGEDTO GET REHIRED IN A FOURTH.

- YOU KNOW, I BEEN DOING THISSINCE I WAS A KID, PRETTY MUCH.

SAVING KIDS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD,YOU KNOW.

- LAUREN GOT A GUT FEELINGHER NEW PARTNER WAS A LOSER.

- YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING,LAUREN?

- WHY DON'T YOU GO IN THE BACKAND DO INVENTORY?

- OH, ALL RIGHT.I'LL DO THAT.

I'VE DONE THAT BEFORE.I'M A PRO ANYWAY.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?

- HERE'S WHY OMAR KEEPSGETTING FIRED.

- IT'S A TIGHT SQUEEZE.

- HE'S ALWAYS GETTING HIGH.

OFF THE COMPANY'S SUPPLY.

WACKED OUT ON NITROUS,OMAR STARTED FANTASIZING

ABOUT LAUREN.

- HEY, OMAR.

HOW ABOUT A LITTLEMOUTH TO MOUTH?

- THIS TIME,OMAR GOT SO HIGH

HE STARTED PLAYING WITH THEDEFIBRILLATOR...

- OMAR, WHAT ARE YOU DOINGBACK THERE?

DON'T DO THAT!

- NORMALLY USED TO JUMPSTARTA STOPPED HEART,

BUT OMAR'S WAS STILL BEATING.

NOT ANYMORE.[flatlining]

- A DEFIBRILLATOR IS PLACEDON THE PATIENT

AND SHOCKS THE HEART,

AND IT RESETS, HOPEFULLY,AND GETS INTO A NORMAL RHYTHM.

IF YOU SHOCKED A HEALTH HEART--

JUST LIKE IT WOULD BE IF YOUWERE GETTING ELECTROCUTED--

ESSENTIALLY WHAT YOU'RE DOINGIS STOPPING THE HEART

IN ITS NORMAL RHYTHM.

SO WHEN HE APPLIED THE PADDLES,HE SENT THE SHOCK

THROUGH HIS HEART,STOPPED HIS HEART,

AND HE KILLED HIMSELF.

- OMAR WAS AN INCOMPETENT DUFUS.

- DON'T DO THAT!

- THANK GOD BEFORE HE COULD DOHARM TO A PATIENT,

HE PULLED HIS OWN PLUG.
