Paramedics take photos of 38 unconscious patients as part of ‘selfie war’

From the Herald:

Two paramedics reportedly challenged each other to a “selfie war.”

But instead of weird faces or exotic locations, the subjects of this selfie war were patients in ambulances, nearly all of them unconscious.

The challenge was between Kayla Renee Dubois, 24, and Christopher Wimmer, 33, in Okaloosa, Florida. The two would take videos and photos of themselves with patients who were “intubated, sedated, or otherwise unconscious at the time,” according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

A total of 41 patients were identified in the selfies, but three were with consenting patients. Two of the 38 unconscious patients have died.
