Hi Paul: Thanks for the comment. The truth is, in most of these situations, I don't know what eventually happens to the victims. I know in this case, he was airlifted to an ER. I make it a point to never photograph the victims. I like to keep this part of my work very styilized and not very graphic. My reasons for shooting these images are numerous. An important one is to convey to an audience what these men and women deal with every day and night. Most people have no clue. I make my images available to law enforcemnt, fireman and paramedics free of charge. It's one way I can say thank you for the job they do and allow me to record the events. Once again, thanks for the comment. If you view the rest, let me know what you think.
