The Florida Ambulance Association was deeply saddened to learn that Lahiri Garcia (51) and Paul Besaw (35) were killed this morning in the line of duty. Both were longstanding and respected team members at AMR Palm Beach/Broward County.
In an interview with WPTV, AMR Regional Director Bill Hall said, “The AMR family has lost two amazing people. They were dedicated husbands, fathers, friends and teammates. Our thoughts are with both families during this difficult time. Lahiri and Paul will be greatly missed.”
AMR said, "Garcia and Besaw were committed to caring for others, and together they had nearly 40 years of service for AMR and the community. Funeral arrangements have not been finalized."
On behalf of the entire FAA membership, the Board extends its deepest condolences to the Garcia and Besaw families.
