Scene Recollection

Just how accurate are EMS scene recollections?

Try this psychology experiment.

Go to this site: http://viscog.beckman.uiuc.edu/grafs/demos/15.html

Run the tape excerpt and try to count the number of times the basketball is passed between people wearing white.

That’s it.

Just count the number of times the ball is passed.

Ponder this experiment the next time you are confronted with eye witness testimony of what occurred at an EMS scene.
