Reinstate Qwasie Reid's job at Assist Ambulance
Qwasie Reid is a true hero who saved the life of a choking 7-year girl while she attended school at PS 250.
Brooklyn first-grader Noelia Echavarria is on life support at NYU Langone Medical Center, thanks to Qwasie's actions. He was sitting outside in his ambulance near the school when he was urgently asked by school staff to help the girl. If he had refused, she would have died on the floor of her school.
His employer, Assist Ambulance, is upset that Qwasie intervened and has indefinitely suspended this hero.
We call on Assist Ambulance to reverse this callous decision and reinstate Qwasie's job. They owe Qwasie and the surrounding community a huge apology for putting the technicalities of their corporate policies over the value of human life.
UPDATE: A GoFundMe page has been set up for Qwasie - if you are able, please visit the page and help him meet his financial responsibilities while he is out of work. Here's the link: https://www.gofundme.com/qwasie/
