Police and paramedics are on the scene of a medical emergency at the Best Buns Bread Company (4010 Campbell Ave) at Shirlington Village.

CPR is reportedly in progress on a female customer who collapsed and had a seizure in the store. The woman is said to be in her mid-30s.

    Thoughts are with this woman. I hope she’s ok.

    who cares…..not about the lady, but more about the posting…nothing else better to report on other than a CPR…they are a dime a dozen around here….

    • Modwop

      Stay classy, Frank.

    • GeorgeOrwell

      Well Frank, if you were one of the thousands in Shirlington for lunch today you may want to at least be aware of what the commotion was all about.
      As for who cares, isn’t a huge majority of stuff on blogs just a bunch of mental, emotional and keyboard masturbation and in the end, who cares about any of it?

    Frank, Is it that difficult to hope the person is OK? We all understand It Is All About You but maybe for a moment you could get away from your SUV mentality and consider the fate of others.

      Frank’s tone was fairly harsh, but the sad reality is that pre-hospital cardiac arrest patients face seriously long odds in surviving. That being said, ACFD runs a first-class EMS system (which, as some have heard on here, is fairly overtaxed, since they run out of available medic units weekly) with ridiculously short response times and Advanced Life Support capabilities on each unit, meaning your survival chances are considerably greater in NoVA than in more rural areas with much longer response times…here’s hoping she pulled through…

      And for the record, I have no idea what an “SUV mentality” is…care to elaborate?

    Wish her the best – hope she’s okay. But since we’re on the topic of Best Buns, I’d recommend those who haven’t tried it before give it a shot. Their cupcakes are incredible.

      The chocolate ones with the cream cheese icing… best ever! Plus they are as big as muffins. Puts Cake Love to shame.

      • Northerner

        yes, “puts Cake Love to shame”, and just about anyone else making cupcakes.

    • Arlingtonian

      Yes! And so is the bread. Mmmmm. I love eating at Carlyle or Silverado and getting a basket of Best Buns bread!

  • Arlingtonian

    Yikes. I too hope she is fine and that she recovers very quickly!
