Hair Bun Saves The Day

Just as I put the nozzle in to start fueling up the rig the tones went off. We were being dispatched to a local shopping center but were advised to stage. On our MDC (a laptop on the engine which we use to receive more information about the call and for mapping purposes...and quite possibly the occasional game of solitaire) we read that we were staging for the victim of an armed robbery at a check cashing business.

Once we arrived on scene we were informed by PD that the 22 year old clerk had been pistol whipped. Our patient appeared shaken but not injured. When questioned she said that the had been hit in the back of the head with the gun but that the blow had glanced off of her hair bun and had not really made contact with her head. We checked her out and found that she was doing as well as could be expected of someone that just got robbed at gunpoint. She signed out AMA.
