Last October, mother Dusty Morgan desperately needed the aid of emergency medical service workers for her toddler, Gus, when he was found unconscious and not breathing after falling into a horse trough. Fortunately, those workers went above and beyond and the story had a happy ending.
“Simply said, they saved more than a life, they saved our whole family,” said Dusty Morgan, a Coalville native and Morgan resident. “They did everything they needed to give him the best, and were a great example of trust and team work.”
It was such a great example that the incident received state-wide attention from the Utah Department of Health as well as the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services and Preparedness. At the July 9, Utah EMS Awards Ceremony, the Morgan County emergency was honored as the state’s outstanding performance for a rural emergency medical incident.
