When Joshua DaSilva met our Emergency Medical Services paramedics Andrew Person and Sean Doherty, he happily went into their arms. After all, they were the first arms that ever held him. A year after they helped his mom Layane bring him safely into the world just in time for Christmas, she invited Andrew and Sean to Joshua’s first birthday. They brought him a Fisher-Price medical kit – in case he wants to follow in their footsteps. Ms. DaSilva said the medics deserved praise for helping her through what she said was a terrifying experience. “They were great,” she said. “They did the best they could and I remember I was freaking out so they tried to keep me calm as best they could.” Read the Telegram & Gazette story.
