Multiple Stabbing Victims on Lakeshore Drive

Lakeside: On Tuesday, August 17, 2010, at 1:46 a.m., the Lakeside Fire District dispatched an engine company and ALS ambulance to the 12600 block of Lakeshore Dr for a reported "stabbing" incident. On arrival, crews stood-by until SDSO deputies could secure the area. Engine 1 and Medic 1 (Riverview Station) made patient contact with a victim that had multiple penetrating injuries to the chest. Medics initiated advanced life support and transported the patient to the trauma center at Sharp Memorial Hospital.

During that initial patient contact, the crew was advised of a second victim in the area. An additional ALS ambulance and engine company were requested to respond to this second victim. On the arrival of M3 (Lake Jennings Station) and E2 (Eucalyptus Hills Station), firefighters located a victim in acute status with multiple wound to the chest and neck area. This victim was also transported to the Sharp Memorial Trauma Center.

Later, a third victim was located with non-life threatening injuries. An additional medic unit (Medic 6-City of El Cajon) was dispatched and this victim was transported to Grossmont Hospital.
