    Dawn of the Dead – Survival by Rob Morganbesser (Genre: Living Dead)

    Sandy Albrecht and Fred Jenkins tore open the doors of their ambulance, yanked the gurney out and practically rammed it through the sliding doors into the ER of Saint James Hospital. As soon as they passed the vestibule Sandy was shouting for a doctor. "We’ve got a severely wounded black male, late twenties going cardiac on us!"

    Jenkins, more sedate than his partner, had been a Paramedic for nearly twelve years, so he allowed Sandy to vent as he kept an eye on their patient. As they moved the gurney into a cubicle and lifted the man, moaning and bleeding from several wounds, to the bed, Jenkins looked at his partner and shook his head. The man’s lips were going pale, as were his extremities. He’d lost a lot of blood from the wounds, especially the one to the throat. While Sandy went for a Doctor, he unplugged the bag of blood expander and plugged in a new one. The wounded man, whose name they didn’t know – he had no I.D. on him – thrashed and moaned. Jenkins cursed out loud. They’d given him a shot of morphine, but it didn’t seem to be working. As he was getting ready to do CPR, he felt the man was going to code any second, Doctor Shiva arrived. A petite Indian woman, she’d saved more patients than he cared to think about. Sometimes Jenkins wondered if the attractive doctor lived in the ER.
