Just after 2200 hours Engine 83 was alerted to MLK Hwy & Addison Rd, in Seat Pleasant, for a cutting. Police had found a male laying in an alley behind a group of stores bleeding and called for the fire department. Engine 83 arrived to find a male who had obviously had his throat cut and was bleeding severely. The crew administered care until EMS units arrived and then assisted with loading the patient. The victim was taken to a local trauma center by PA38 and A5. Engine 83 remained on scene for about 2 hours assisting police with their investigation before returning home.
