Possible DB

On Monday evenings at MVFD we have explorers come over so they can learn about being a firefighter. This last Monday explorers was interrupted by a call for a man down, possible DB (dead body). We quickly made our way over to the address and found the wife outside, and very upset. I walked inside the bedroom expecting to find a dead guy (especially because of the wife's reaction) to find a man laying on the ground looking up at me. Turns out he was a little out of it. He is a diabetic, with a blood sugar that was a little low. He answered almost all of our questions correctly. He wasn't quite sure how he got on the ground but denies any pain whatsoever. We gave him some sugar to take orally and started an IV just in case the sugar didn't bring his blood sugar up fast enough. When we were loading him up on the ambulance he started called the MBA paramedic a terrorist and stating the he wanted to go back to Vietnam. I'm glad that I didn't have to ride in the back of an ambulance with a patient calling me a terrorist.
