What do you do when you’re injured on the job? Do you simply get tough and ignore it, or do you get it treated in the hopes that you get better? What if you’re a firefighter, doing the job that you’ve always dreamed of doing?
From a report in WSB, when Sylvana Davis was training to be a firefighter, she hurt her shoulder. She was in an incredible amount of pain, so she reported it, but her training officer told her that she should tough it out.
And she did, but she was still hurt.
She graduated and was then put into a position where she was asked to put out a fire. And, in the process, she reinjured her shoulder. There was apparently no medical treatment offered to Ms. Davis while she had an injured shoulder.
She kept going because she was afraid of losing her job, curious about where her support was going to come from. Then, after injuring her shoulder for a second time, she was fired from her work as a firefighter.
Right now, Ms. Davis is unsure as to what she is going to do next.
