  3. Brian Nunamaker:

    As a parent, you feel extremely helpless to be unable to assist the most important person in the world during such a time of emergency, worst case scenarios run through your head while you are hoping for the best. The eternity of waiting for help to arrive was surprisingly non-existent in this situation. I was surprised at how quickly help had arrived in the form of a fire truck. When the firefighters arrived on the scene, Nunamaker’s daughter was limp but she was still breathing and had a pulse. His daughter arrived at the hospital and started to have another seizure, but it stopped momentarily. Nunamaker said his daughter was later transferred to VCU and was later discharged. Nunamaker told Fox 5 DC he was hoping to put the ordeal behind him, but couldn’t when he heard the news of Kelley and Bloom’s suspension. My wife and I feel terrible for the fallout that has happened to these two gentlemen, Nunamaker said in a statement to Fox 5 DC. They simply had the best interests for our daughter's care in mind.

They're getting a little bit of heat, getting a little bit of attention, and are trying to make him look bad.
