Can someone clarify what exactly happened? I wasn't able to watch the meet.
And for the posters asking if an EMS crew would be at a sporting event: yes they would. I've been working EMS for a little while, and companies *sometimes* get away with just a BLS crew for lower level competition, like high school games. But larger events, especially collegiate and professional, will have at least one paramedic on scene, if not two. A paramedic has the qualifications and training to properly perform cardioversion as necessary, which sounds like what happened.
