99% of the time, the relationship that exists between different parts of the emergency services is a good and solid one.
But every so often, relationships can ‘deteriorate’ – especially when trying to work out what is happening and who is doing what during an incident.
The body worn camera footage (below) of another Ohio Police Officer at the scene shows the moment that an EMT worker shouted at a Cop for trying to control a male who was lashing out whilst on a trolley.
During the incident, one EMT worker asked the officer for help in trying to control the male who had just regained consciousness after being involved in an altercation outside of a night club.
However, another Medic at the scene did not hear the request and shouted at the officer.
The Officer can then been seen, via a colleagues body worn camera footage, to take the medic to one side before pinning him up against a vehicle.
It later transpired that the Medic who asked the police officer not to intervene with the male on the trolley, did not realise that his colleague had asked the officer to help out.
The medic seen to ‘have words’ with the officer also thought that the male patient on the trolley had a head injury.
The video below lasts 6 minutes, but the altercation between the cop and the medic happens at 4.5 minutes into the video.
We have included the whole footage for context rather than doing what some media outlets might do and only show the footage of the incident between the two first responders.
It was reported that the two men later parted amicably.
