What sign helps you know which organ this child’s mass is arising from?
An example of Atlantooccipital dislocation, better known as internal decapitation.

Internal decapitation is the same mechanism that executions by hanging typically occurred. If the dislocation did not occur then the condemned hung until suffocation.

EMS isn’t the police and we won’t/don’t care about getting you in trouble, but what the cops choose to do with the information they obtain while on the call isn’t in our control.
