Asthma attack

Oakland University Police dispatch received a phone call on the afternoon of Oct. 22, 2019 for a medical emergency. Dispatch called on-duty officers with information about a female having an extreme asthma attack in her dorm. Two officers responded to the call and arrived on the scene.

When they arrived, the two officers found the student sitting at her desk gasping for air. She would cough, speak a few words and then continue to gasp for air. Auburn Hills paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after and began their medical assessment of the student. The paramedics finished their assessment, and the student agreed to transport for additional medical care, where paramedics transported the student to Crittenton Hospital. Housing staff was also on scene and assisted first responders. The scene was then cleared.
