JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
Last April, a Military Emergency Medical Services and Disaster Medicine fellow from Brooke Army Medical Center was on a routine ride-along with Austin/Travis County Emergency Medical Services when they responded to a 911 call about a 29-year-old female who went into cardiac arrest at a cross fit gym.
On April 5, exactly one year later, Army Capt. (Dr.) Jason Ausman was finally able to meet Tamra Harris, the woman he helped to save.
"When I was working out, I collapsed with a barbell over my head,” Harris said. “It fell down onto my neck and I just kind of collapsed onto the ground. I actually don't have a memory of that. My memory cuts out about two hours before I fell to the ground.”
