VIDEO: Two Detroit medics both fired accused of not performing CPR when it could have saved a life. A 30-year-old man was having a heart attack -- and died. Now one of the medics is sharing his story. The Detroit fire commissioner is not talking about what happened but the family of victim Patrick Clemons, is. It was January 4th, early in the morning when the call came in about a man falling at a Detroit apartment complex. But in a matter of hours, Clemons, 30, would be dead. Now a formal complaint has been filed through Detroit EMS administration, alleging "inappropriate care." The medics Julian Holts a paramedic and Michael Morgan, an EMT, were fired, pending an arbitration. Morgan was the one riding in the back with Patrick Clemons. "Nothing to lead anyone to believe they weren't totally and fully engaged in providing appropriate patient care," said William Harp, vice-president, Detroit Firefighters Association. "On this run and every other run they've been on."
