At 7:30 a.m. on October 17, in Gainesville, Georgia, two female medics were trying to help a patient into an ambulance when they were confronted by a man brandishing knives. Although police had been tipped off to the threat and were told the individual had been talking about killing people, they had yet to arrive. To ensure the women wouldn't fall under the knife in an amateur sidewalk surgery, an armed military veteran nearby took quick and decisive action.
