The Cantu Magnet School EMT lab at Martin High School unveiled its new state of the art ambulance simulator and we were here to get a first hand look. Many people in life have no idea what career they want to work in, but not these high school students. "It's beyond amazing. I wake up every morning and I'm so excited to come to school." Gabriella Dominguez is a senior who's been in this EMT program four years. She says the experience she has gained is getting her ready for life after high school. "It's beyond incredible. We've already learned how to pick people up in the stretcher." This dummy in the simulator even makes real life noises just like a patient would. The program director teaching this class is just as excited as the students about this simulator and says he's proud to watch them put their knowledge to use. "It's different when you teach them with books because books don't bleed, don't smell, don't do anything. When you get pieces like this, this is what brings alive the colors from the books." Just like the demonstration the students put on, it takes a special person to enjoy being around blood and gore. "You have to be a really dedicated person to do this. It's not for everybody." "So this is your passion?" "Yes, my passion is to help people."
