The Star Tribune reported on February 13 that Chris Coleman, St. Paul mayor, was the first to help parents and their ill child who was stuck on Ohio Street to their way to the hospital. Coleman was driving to greet some convention visitors Friday evening before he slowed down when he saw the car stopped in the middle of the street to see if they were having a car problem. Immediately, the parent rushed his baby into the car thinking that it was an officer responding to their call. Coleman then drove the family to the United Hospital driving over the speed limit.
The story is interesting because it is not typical for a mayor to respond in an emergence incidents. It has prominence because the St. Paul mayor who is a prominent person is evolved. The story has also immediacy because it was reported right after the incident took place. It has emotions because the mayor helped two parents whose child is sick.
