  • You'll never see this with an American ambulance

    The story is the dogs' homeless owner had an epileptic seizure and was taken in an ambulance to the hospital, his dog is shown chasing after the ambulance, not terribly unusual, but what the ambulance crew does is, so too is the E.R. situation when the patient arrives:

          Don't bet on it

          This dog is now owned by one of my paramedic classmates..............not the person mentioned in the story...but the Paramedic mentioned

          CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – A community came together to grant a homeless man his last wish. That dying wish was to see his dog one more time. It was a simple request, but one that meant the world to him in his final days.

          People involved with the man's last wish describe it as something they'll never forget. Now that he's gone, they'll always cherish the memories of the man and his best friend.

          "She is full of energy and just brings so much love and energy into the home," said the dog's new owner, Kate Ungs. Meet Yurtie, also known as Yurt. She is getting used to her new home, adopted by Kate and Eric Ungs of Marion. "When we first saw her online in the bio it said, has a very compelling story, but you know, at the time those were just words," said Eric Ungs.

          Yurt used to live with a homeless Cedar Rapids man, 57-year-old Kevin McClain, in his car. But a month ago he became ill with lung cancer.

          Paramedics rushed him to Mercy Medical Center and later to Hospice House. Yurt went to the animal shelter.

          "In the transition of moving him over from our ambulance cot to the bed, he told me, 'I have a dog,'" said Area Ambulance Service Paramedic Specialist Jan Erceg.

          Yurt's shelter was the same shelter where Kevin's paramedic, Erceg, also volunteered.

          "He said her name is Yurt and at that moment, that was my Aha! moment," Erceg said.

          From the day Yurt and Kevin were separated, he asked to see her.

          It was his dying wish.

          The Hospice Home, Ambulance Service and shelter teamed up to make it happen.

          "And the moment he opened those eyes and saw that dog there was instant recognition and with Yurtie, she licked his arms, she licked his face," Erceg said.

          "It was a couple days later that Kevin did pass away here at the Hospice House. So it just really seemed to work so perfect," said Dennis & Donna Oldorf Hospice House Patient Care Coordinator Brandi Garrett.

          In the end, this companion was there for his owner, even in death. That's a true companion that the Ungs know they're now lucky to have.

          "She's our family and we're her family, just a tight knit group," Eric Ungs said.

              Oh yes, I remember Yurt! what a story that was and I had saved it to my hard drive back then because it was good.
