Recordings of the actual calls, interspersed with interviews with the paramedics and other rescue workers, provide a vivid look at the life-or-death dramas that occur every day.

one episode in particular....
30 August 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

William Shatner wasn't the great host that Robert Stack was for Unsolved Mysteries or Leonard Nimoy for In Search Of.. or Peter Thomas for Forensic Files. He acted as if this whole thing was just a big bore to him. I used to enjoy watching this show though and it amazed and at times horrified me at how people got hurt thru their own foolishness. Like the two stories they had on there about boys who were badly burned playing with gas. The episodes of "emergencies" all had happy endings, save for one. This teenage boy was "huffing" a can of butane. He practically inhaled the entire can and went into cardiac arrest. He died that night in the hospital. It was heartbreaking to watch, but I think it provided a good lesson to kids.
