Zombie Apocalypse in Australia

Post by pErvinalia » Sun Apr 29, 2018 2:30 pm

It was after midnight when ambulance officer Gabrielle O'Dea raced to a home in Sydney's south west where a young man had suffered a suspected heart attack.

"We are focusing on a 26-year old man, we have a short period of time - about four minutes - to save his life if the call is correct," she said.

Within minutes of the ambulance arriving, the scene "turned to hell", Ms O'Dea said.

What followed resembled a "zombie apocalypse movie", according to Ms O'Dea, a senior intensive care paramedic with 34 years' experience and a delegate for the Health Services Union.

The paramedics found the man unconscious, but breathing with a "nice strong pulse". Suddenly he started to grimace, breathing deeply through clenched teeth.

His hands started to jerk into fists, making the ambulance officers fear he was going to have a fit, acting like many patients who have taken the drug ice.

Without warning, the patient grabbed a paramedic's arm, twisting her rotator cuff. Using only one arm, and still lying on the floor, the patient sent the woman flying through the air with shocking force.

"All I saw was [her] go flying past, and end up on the bathroom floor," Ms O'Dea said.

The man moved so quickly that by the time Ms O'Dea's colleague had landed, he was fleeing the room, but not before elbowing Ms O'Dea in the chest and slamming a third officer in the shoulder.

The ambulances officers were so afraid they locked themselves in the room, grabbing anything they could to protect themselves before police arrived.

They could hear the man "screaming like a crazed animal outside". Then he punched the glass at the back of the ambulance with such force that shards flew metres forward into the dashboard.

It took four ambulance officers and two police officers to subdue the patient. He pled guilty and was sentenced to two years in jail for destruction of property, assault, assault occasioning bodily harm, assaulting an officer in the course of duty, resisting arrest and intimidation.

"It is like the zombie apocalypse and the walking dead. This is what they are like. There is nothing going on in their brain that you can reason with," Ms O'Dea said of uncontrollable patients.

People do strange things under the influence of Australia.

When they start eating faces, then I'll admit we are having a Florida-level zombie apocalypse...

Can imagine a lot has happened in a place that big and remote we'll never get to know about. The sea holds a thousand tales untold they say. And Australia is bigger than the sea.

Need to add a bit of synthetic weed to get the full face-eating effect, but kudos for the good try.

Keep it up, lads, you'll be in the big leagues in no time!

An Ice addict, one presumes...

Back in my day, it was all about sitting in grungy little bed sits, listening to Floyd, and occasionally uttering profound sayings, like "Man, look at those colours changing with the music"

Asking profound, universal questions, like "is the blue that I see the same as the blue you see"?
