Paramedic proposes to the woman he helped save after domestic violence attack

Melissa’s ex-boyfriend attacked her, and Cameron helped her in her recovery.


BACK IN 2012, an ambulance was called to the scene of a brutal attack in the US.

The first paramedic there was Cameron Hill, and his job was to try and save the life of Melissa Dohme. Melissa was lying in a pool of blood after being attacked by an ex-boyfriend.

Over three years later, they are now engaged to be married – and their story is capturing the heart of the internet

Once Melissa had started her recovery, Cameron and another paramedic visited her to see how she was getting on.

As she told The Tampa Bay Times, ”I had this feeling about him.”

The two started dating and have been together ever since.

She went on to say about her attack: ”When I look back on that night, I can’t think of it as all bad anymore because I met Cameron.”
