    This is my favorite episode from the third season. Rescue 911 has featured asthma attacks, robberies, diving accidents, and diabetics before, but this episode was much more gripping than the same types of stories that were featured on past episodes. I also think that this episode had good examples of friendships and special bonds that were strengthened through emergencies.



    In the first segment, four teenage girls are on their way to a local mall when one of them starts having an allergic reaction to a cookie and stops breathing. Her friend drives fast and almost recklessly to get to a nearby police station in time. I liked how this segment had interviews with everyone involved and how they became closer as friends through the incident. Some episodes only have interviews with one or two people who were there, and the interview stops when that person is no longer at the scene. This episode followed everyone until the end.



    In the second segment, a restaurant employee sneaks out when he sees an armed robber holding two other employees at gunpoint. He calls 911, but the robber has an accomplice watching the parking lot. While the restaurant is being robbed, two customers in a car go through drive-thru and get served, completely oblivious to what is going on. Unexpected comic relief comes when one of the robbers accidentally shoots himself while climbing over a wall to get away from the police. This was a suspenseful segment with a touch of humor.



    In the third segment, a teenage boy dives into a shallow pool and becomes paralyzed. His friends want to remove him, but his girlfriend knows that they should leave him in the pool and keep him still. It turns out that she probably kept him from being paralyzed.



    The fourth segment is about a little girl who calls 911 when her diabetic father loses consciousness. I tend to think that segments where kids call 911 and save their parents are overdone, but this one was exceptional in that it was more touching than the rest. The dispatchers in past episodes of this type were usually more objective and matter-of-fact while the dispatchers in this one actually seemed to care about the little girl and tried to comfort her until help arrived.



    The emotions and suspense in this episode kept me interested all the way through. I was never bored and just waiting for the next segment to come up.moreless
  • I like the last part of this episode the best, about the little girl who finds her dad passed out in the drivers side of his little pick-up truck.

    What makes the last part of this episode the best is the acting. That little girl Megan Vosburgh is the best little actress I have ever seen. That girl sould have gotten an Emmy or Golden Globe for her preformence. Not to mention she is so adroable. And for a little girl only at 5 years of age is amazing. The producers of Rescue 911 should be thrilled and honored that they have her first work. I can tell you right now that that girl is going to be so encrediably famous one day. And they'll wish they had offered her some kind of acting contrat, their loss.moreless
