Israeli Paramedic Saves a Police Officer’s Life by Performing an Emergency Operation

by Mackenzie Landi

During the horrific attacks in Israel, Magen David Adom, Israel’s emergency service organization, has set
up emergency evacuation points where the wounded receive first aid and are transferred to hospitals, often
in armored ambulances.

Alisa Krant is a paramedic who was on a Mobile ICU unit when a police officer was brought in who was in
critical unstable condition. She determined while evacuating the officer in the MICU that an emergency
operation on the victim was required to save his life. She performed the operation in the ambulance. This
immediate action stabilized him for the transport to the hospital. The officer arrived at the hospital in critical
but stable condition where he immediately went into a trauma room.

Alisa Krant, Magen David Adom Paramedic: "It is a spur of the moment decision, which is not always an
easy one to make during an urgent evacuation. In that moment, when the patient’s condition stabilized, the
team and I were immensely relived. The fact that the patient was intermittently conscious during the
treatment allowed us to also offer him emotional support in addition to medical care. I never let go of his
hand the whole time, so he wouldn’t feel alone even for one second."
