The emegency staff of Rampart Hospital swings into the second season of Emergency! as a radio malfunction forces paramedic Roy DeSoto (Kevin Tighe) to perform emergency surgery without medical supervision on a man trapped under his car. When the patient subsequently dies, DeSoto is mercilessly reprimanded by the victim's personal doctor (Lloyd Bochner)--and for a while, it looks as if Roy will drop out of the paramedic program entirely. Elsewhere, a bull gores a cyclist, a child is trapped I a fire, and a visiting surgeon suffers a heart attack. Michael Norell makes his first series appearance as Captain Hank Stanley.
