Storyline

Roy and John become candidates to represent Station 51 on the welfare committee. The firemen save first a man who got his arm stuck in a drainpipe, then his brother swallows a pull tab and aspirates. A woman seems more concerned with making a plane flight than her son, admitted with Reye's Syndrome, where Dixie and Dr. Morton encourages Dr. Brackett to ask the parents in making that decision for their son. A sculptress calls the Squad to get her model out of a plaster cast, then the firemen save a construction worker trapped on a crane. Written by Gary Richard Collins II (brothergaryii@gmail.com)

Trivia

During the first rescue, in which a man's arm is stuck in a washing machine drainage pipe, the victim's brother-in-law is drinking several cans of beer. As he opens each beer, the brother-in-law would take the (detachable) pull tab and drop it into the beer can before consuming it. This was a not an uncommon practice among soda and beer drinkers in the 1960s and early 1970s, when this style of pull tab was produced. In this scene, just as Station 51 makes themselves available, the brother-in-law accidentally swallows one of these pull tabs and aspirates, resulting in a trip to Rampart. This scene served as a safety reminder, one of several employed during the show's run, about the potential danger of old-style pull tabs. In 1975, a new - and safer - style of pull tab, called the "Sta-Tab" hit the market; the tabs on present-day beverage cans are based on this design. See more »
