Television host, Ellen DeGeneres had to call paramedics yesterday after she was experiencing severe pains in her chest.
Ellen started feeling the pains in her chest on Sunday and when they were still there on Monday she knew she had to get some help and called an ambulance.
Paramedics arrived at the Warner Brothers studios in Los Angeles within a few minutes to help her. Ellen explained what happened; “What happened was last night I was having chest pains. So this morning the paramedics came to look at me. First of all, I’m fine … I woke up in the middle of the night. I was feeling like a tightness of my chest and all the scary things … like something was heavy on my chest and it was a cat so I moved it. I still felt the tightness and heaviness so there was another cat under that cat. There were two cats on my chest. Then I got to work and it was still happening. I was still feeling the pains. So I was like, ‘You know, I should check this out. It’s better to be safe than sorry.”
Along with the paramedics, the fire department also showed up. Ellen said; “Who doesn’t want to see a fireman occasionally? … We called the paramedics here on the Warner Bros. lot and about 50 trucks and ambulances, like one marching band short of a parade showed up outside of my office. Then they come in with an axe. Break the door down. It was open. I don’t know why they did that. They came in, they asked me all the questions, ‘How are you feeling? When did it start? Family history? … All the questions that they would ask but everything is fine. I want to say thank you to all the paramedics and the nurses who showed up and everybody for caring so much … I appreciate it.”
