HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, Canada — A Halifax paramedic found himself in a scary situation Saturday evening when a man he had helped revive pulled a knife and chased him out of a Dartmouth apartment.
Halifax Regional Police say the paramedic was working on an unconscious man inside an apartment in the 200 block of Wyse Road around 6 p.m.
Staff Sgt. Bill Morris said once the man started breathing again he became “very aggressive” and pulled a knife on the paramedic, who called for police assistance. “If they don’t feel safe they’re going to call, like the general public,” Morris said.
