A Tulsa, OK, police officer lost consciousness and was rushed to a hospital Friday morning following a struggle with a patient attempting to escape an ambulance.
The out-of-town ambulance was headed to Saint Francis Hospital when its patient broke loose from his restraints and began fighting personnel, Tulsa Police Capt. Richard Meulenberg told the Tulsa World. The ambulance personnel called police for help and were met about 8 a.m. by Officer Sean Love.
Love began fighting to subdue the patient in the street, but he soon “fell unconscious,” Meulenberg said.
Other officers got the patient under control.
"(Love) is currently in the ICU and in a medically induced coma due to concerns developing from his loss of consciousness," the Tulsa PD said on social media. "He will be in this state for at least 24 hours before we have an update on his condition."
