This will bring a tear to your eye...
A Dublin man has opened up about being a paramedic in the city and the rewards that the job brings.
Speaking to Humans Of Dublin, Des Mulreany explained that earlier this year, he received an emotional message into the Active First Responders Facebook page from a person thanking him and his colleague Ger for saving their life.
The message read:
"A huge thank you to Des and Ger who, well, quite simply, saved my life on January 26th. I had a heart attack at work and would not be here, writing this post, if it were not for them. Their medical skills, their ability to remain calm and assured made my fear instantly dissipate, and I knew instantly I was in safe and accomplished hands. The selfless dedication of these paramedics display is both impressive and humbling- Des even managed to make me laugh!!! I can’t sufficiently ever thank you - but I know that I owe my life to both of you and I hope you know it too. God bless you all.’
Des says they also helped three babies into the world this week, one on the highway, one in the Ambulance and one in a private bathroom.
"Tell me, what's not to like in a job like this?”, he added.
Des Mulreany is nominated in the Dublin Hero category in 98FM's Best Of Dublin Awards with Des Kelly Interiors, along with Michael Cardiff a paramedic with St John's Ambulance Ireland, Michelle Conroy from Crumlin A&E, Dave Horan from Finglas Fire Station and Colin Nugent from Dublin Fire Brigade.
