Are they still taking sick people to the Rand Memorial Horse Spittal ?

I would recommend an aspirin instead - much better chance of success.

Anyone know if the oxygen tanks in the ambulances have oxygen in them yet?

Very sad indeed. He should be honored for standing up and protecting the innocent. Unfortunately it is very dangerous to come to the aid of someone in our society today as, I believe and assume, most youths have either a gun or a knife in their possession.
