LOWER BURRELL, Pa. — In what might be a first in Pennsylvania, a Lower Burrell paramedic will stand trial on charges alleging she interfered with police who were trying to get a suicidal woman to go to the hospital.
Paramedic Jodi L. Kerr-Rummel, 31, of Derry is charged with obstructing police and disorderly conduct. She pleaded not guilty. Her attorney argues that she was trying to do what was best for the patient.
