Today's episode of "The Horseshoe Shoved Up Meef's Ass":

I'm off my real job today, and I picked up a 24 hour shift on EMS. It's a nice slow day and I'm chilling on the couch, when we get a run dispatched. I yawn and pull my boots on, when suddenly, an explosion comes from outside so close I can feel it in my chest.

I just have time to start looking up towards the noise when the wall of the station disintigrates, and a pickup truck comes sailing in to the living room.

It hits the couch I'm sitting on, just barely, but vaporizes the wall and most of the living area.

I leap up and out of the way and scream like a little girl. A second or two elapse and I recover sufficiently to go to the driver's door of the truck. A woman is behind the wheel, unresponsive, with two little kids are inside screaming and crying.

I pull the door open, and the woman is in cardiac arrest.

I yell for my partner (who was in the bathroom, taking a shit). Like he didn't hear armageddon bearing down on us anyway...

I drag the woman out of the cab and onto the floor, and start CPR.

My partner comes running out, pants all askew, and we work this woman for a few minutes and are successful in getting a pulse and respirations back.

A second EMS truck arrives and we get her loaded up and she is transported, current condition is alive and talking.

The station is destroyed. So is my car. She hit my Honda, ricocheted off the car, bounced over a 2.5" porch, and into the station.

Had my car not been there to slow her down I suspect she'd have probably killed both my partner and I. We were both in the path of the truck, the bathroom is basically on the other side of a wall about ten inches from where her bumper stopped. Not to mention, she would likely have died since it would have been another 5 minutes for the other EMS truck to get there and start working her.

Fucking craziness. And the ultimate irony, after all that, we were still on duty, and we get a run... to the local hospital... to take the driver to a cardiac hospital.

Obligatory post carnage photos:

The living room looks like a cheesy 80's era porn shoot.

Wow!

Glad you and your partner are OK, as well as the driver and kids. Crazy.

RIP poor Civic. It's been through a lot, but talk about a crazy ending. Guess you'll be looking for a FRS/BRZ a little quicker than you expected.

Holy shit dude....that's crazy. Glad you're ok. Shame about the Honda.

And, this is nitpicky and makes me think of the Spinal Tap "Stonehenge" scene, your porch is 2.5 feet, not 2.5". My brain read that and thought, wow, that's the tiniest fucking porch ever...no wonder it didn't stop a truck. Pictures cleared that up.

I blew my wad on the Tenere, I'm gonna get a beater 4 cyl pickup. I put 2000 miles on a car per year now that I am back to walking to work.

Seeking late 80s Toyota 4WD 22RE....

If this gets picked up by the press you could be a star. You are just the guy to get killed in some ridiculous way sitting on a couch.

Seriously now; amazing "catch" on the CPR save, I'm buying next time we have breakfast or lunch.

Damn Lucky. Glad she didn't hit either of you guys.
