Nick Moore, am EMT wrote, "The man pictured was unable to save one of his patients. Though this is a common occurrence in our field of work, the patients we lose are typically old, sick, or some combination of the two. The patient that died was 19 years old, and for him, it was one of those calls we get sometimes that just hits you."
Moore said he posted the photo to show what it's like to work in a life-and-death profession.
"I think people should know that the care providers are just as human as the patients, and this shows that stronger than anything I've seen in a long while."
