Jayme Erickson's "worst nightmare" as a parademic came true last week. Erickson, a paramedic was dispatched to an accident scene on November 15 where two-vehicle had crashed. After arriving with her partner at the scene at 4:30 pm, she found one of the two victims who was gravely injured and trapped in a car was a teenage girl. But the "injures were so horrific" that Erickson didn't realize that the "critically injured patient" who she had attended to was her own daughter. She described her pain and grief recounting the event in a Facebook post and wrote, "My only child. My mini-me. My daughter, Montana."

She recalls that she did "whatever I could" to attend to the victims, while firefighters extricated her from the wreckage, reports Vancouver Sun. Once the parademics got the patients out, STARS air ambulance took over patient care and flew the teenage girl to Foothills Medical Center. "My shift was over and I went home," explains Erickson.
