Paramedic who saved FR students' lives: ‘You just have to stay calm'



PITTSBURGH - Murrysville Medic One is a busy place.  Every week, paramedics roll out to hundreds of calls from car accidents to house fires.

On Wednesday morning, medics got the call that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Paramedic Kathryn Morgan had just gotten to the station when the tones went off.  There had been a stabbing at nearby Franklin Regional High School.

“It was dispatched as an emergency for multiple stabbings and you never know what to expect,” said Morgan.

Morgan helped the students who suffered the most severe wounds.  She tried to keep them calm while she worked to save their lives.

“You just have to stay calm and be a steady voice and just talk to them about things other than what naturally is going on.  You try to get their minds off of it and just keep them talking,” said Morgan.

Morgan appreciates the praise but insists she’s not a hero.  She was just doing her job.
