Subtitled: Life and Death on the Streets of the City. This is the brutally honest story of an emergency medical technician. At 18, Joe Clark started working as an ambulance attendant to pay his way through college. For the next 7 years, he worked New York City's most dangerous neighborhoods as an EMT, dealing with medical emergencies from drug overdoses, gang fights, car crashes and worse, all while juggling a full course load at college and a personal life. His stories are a graphic portrayal of the life of an ambulance EMT. Clark's stories are horrifying, poignant, touching, and often filled with the dark humor that is so characteristic of the people who do this for a living or as volunteers. Clark, who earned a PhD, is currently a scientist, researcher, and faculty member at the University of Cincinnati's Department of Neurology, specializing in the causes and treatments of stroke.
