Florida Paramedic Injured While Aiding Stabbed Woman

A central Florida paramedic is recovering at a hospital days after being run over while assisting a woman whose husband had just stabbed her.

Fire chief Ronnie Long tells the Daytona Beach News-Journal that Caroline Dorton was having dinner at a Chili's restaurant Sunday night when she heard someone had been stabbed. She rushed to the parking lot to help.

There she found Chericia Brown on the ground and tried to help.

Seminole County Sheriff's officials say Brown was stabbed by her husband, Henry Brown. He returned in his car and ran over her, Dorton and an unidentified nurse who was also helping.

Chericia Brown later died. Authorities say Henry Brown then killed himself and the couple's two young children.

A spokesman says Dorton remains in critical condition.
