Paramedic Unknowingly Treated Her Own Daughter After Fatal Car Crash

On November 15th, in Calgary, Canada, a driver lost control of their car and was hit by an oncoming truck. Paramedic Jayme Erickson was one of many who were called to the scene. According to CBS News, she quickly began tending to the wounds of a teenager that had been removed from the car, and prepared her for her journey to a nearby hospital, where she later she succumbed to her injuries.

The victim’s wounds were so severe that she was unrecognizable, and Erickson was unable to see that the injured teen was her daughter, Montana. It wasn’t until she had returned home from her shift, and police officers had arrived to her front door, that she had realized who the patient she had been was.

“My worst nightmare as a paramedic has come true,” Erickson wrote in a Facebook post. “The critically injured patient I had just attended to, was my own flesh and blood. My only child. My mini-me. My daughter, Montana. Her injures were so horrific I did not even recognize her. . . . I cannot help but be angry for the short amount of time I was given with her. 17 years was not long enough.”
