Lancaster, Pa. — Amid the horrific aftermath of the shooting of Amish children their school, paramedic Andrew Gilger heard a fellow responder say something that still made sense to him despite the senselessness of it all.
"God was with us while we were taking care of those kids," he recalled hearing a co-worker say.
"That's what I fall back on personally," says Gilger, director of operations for Lancaster Emergency Medical Services.
