Father Gets Police Help to Take Son to Hospital 5月大男嬰發燒抽搐 警開道助送醫化險

The five-month-old child of a Tainan resident surnamed Kuo suddenly spiked a fever and twitching after previously testing positive for COVID. With the police escort, he was able to reach the hospital in five minutes.


A police car is parked by the curb. Suddenly, a man runs towards the police car. This man, surnamed Kuo, was driving his five-month-old son to a hospital after the baby suddenly spiked a fever. It happened to be rush hour, and he was frantic. At that moment, he saw a police car and immediately went over to ask for assistance.

Li Chung-hsien, Deputy Captain, 2nd Precinct, Tainan City PD: “It was rush hour and it was raining. There were many cars on the roads, making it difficult to drive quickly. The police officers saw that the infant was in critical condition, immediately reported this, and turned on the car's lights and siren. The resident's vehicle was escorted to the hospital.”

This incident occurred on the evening of June 8. The police immediately offered help when asked, shortening the travel time to Chi Mei Medical Center from 20 minutes to five minutes. Kuo's two sons had previously tested positive, and he was taking care of them at home. The younger one spiked a fever and became insensible, and showed symptoms like muscle twitching. Kuo decided to drive him to a hospital. He was very grateful for the help he received from the police.

Mr. Kuo: “I saw them parked by the roadside. It looked like they were on duty because the car's lights were on. Although it might have exceeded their duties somewhat, I still parked my car and ran over to talk to them. When we got there, they told me to take the child to the emergency room, and to give them a call later to fill them in.”

The child is in stable condition after receiving treatment. Tainan's Public Health Bureau says that for emergency situations, parents can first call 119. If the situation is critical and they need to go to a hospital on their own, they should first inform the health bureau and the health bureau will guide them to a hospital with pediatric outpatient services or available beds for children. This will save time and ensure it won't be a wild-goose chase.

 

 

警車正停在路邊,突然有一位男子跑向警車旁,原來是這名郭姓男子5個月大的兒子,因發燒要送去醫院,但卻遇到車流量多,正不知道如何是好,剛好遇到警方,趕緊上前尋求協助。

台南市警二分局副分局長李忠憲表示:「因適逢下班時段而且下雨,道路上車流較多難以速行,員警看到嬰孩身體狀況十分危急,馬上通報並開啟警示燈及蜂鳴器,一路上並且安全的帶著民眾的車輛快速抵達醫院。」

事情發生在8日晚間,警方二話不說,直接幫忙開道,讓原本需要20分鐘的車程,縮短到5分鐘即到達奇美醫院。郭姓男子的2名兒子確診,居家照護,當時小兒子發高燒到意識不清、又不斷抽搐,擔心有生命危險,自行開車送醫受阻,冒雨攔警車,相當感謝警方幫忙。

郭姓男子說:「剛好看到他停在路邊,好像在執勤中,因為他們有開警示燈,然後就雖然說有超過他們一點點,我一樣停路邊跑去跟他們講這樣,到的時候他也叫我快點送小孩去掛急診,資料部分就是到時候,再打電話跟他們候補就好,所以蠻好的。」

經過治療後,小兒子狀況回穩,台南市衛生局建議,民眾遇到孩童症狀出現緊急狀況,可先通報119,萬一情況危及要自行送醫,也建議先致電衛生局,衛生局會指引民眾到有兒童門診、或有兒童空床的醫院,一方面節省時間,一方面也確保不會白跑一趟。
