Recalling how she performed CPR and chest compressions for roughly 20 minutes, Alisha Martinez told Hall County commissioners and Hall County Fire Services’ staff of her wait for a paramedic. “This affects real people, folks. That ambulance came from either Holly Drive or Spout Springs (Road). I live in Lula, 2.2 miles away from a fire station. Why was I the one who had to try to save that man’s life and not a paramedic?” she asked, following her fiance’s fatal cardiac arrest.
