Man is that intense or what... A&E uploaded the video to their YouTube channel back in October of 2021, and in the description of the video, they say...

""Live Rescue" follows firefighters, paramedics and EMTs from across the country as they bravely put their lives on the line responding to emergency rescue calls. Emmy® Award-winner Matt Iseman joins “Live Rescue” with impressive media and medical credentials."

I love watching videos like this one for a couple of reasons, first of all, it is fascinating to watch what these first responder heroes go through on a daily basis. I sit here in the nice, warm KICK-FM radio station blabbing on a microphone all morning while these neighborhood heroes are responding to the craziest of emergencies, you gain such an appreciation for what they go through day after day putting their own lives on the line. The other main reason I find these videos must watch is that so many of these situations that happen are situations you could find yourself in, obviously, you don't hope to find yourself in the situation like the lady in the video whose femur broke BUT there is always the possibility that could be you and there is something about watching people go through these situations that give me hope that if I find myself in a bad situation I could handle it, and be surrounded by great first responders like the ones featured in the show.

PS... Bring back Cops, that was a great show.
