Sacramento Crew Met by Hostile Group Calls Police

A paramedic crew responded to a report of a person who stopped breathing when they were met by around 10 people who stopped them from entering an apartment building.


Sacramento firefighters had to call on police for help Sunday night after a hostile group of people prevented them from assisting a patient.

A paramedic crew responded to a report of a person who stopped breathing the 2600 block of Traction Avenue around 9:45 p.m. when they were met by around 10 people who stopped them from entering an apartment building, according to The Sacramento Bee.

The police report states that a children's scooter was tossed at the firefighters at one point.

Once officers arrived, they too were blocked from the apartment after a wrought iron fence door was locked.

The officers scaled the fence in order to cover the firefighters.

The victim was eventually taken to a local hospital.

One person was arrested on suspicion of obstructing and delaying police.

No firefighters or police officers were injured in the incident.
