Paintings of stills taken from end scenes of Rescue 911 episodes. Rescue 911 was an American docu-drama from the 1990’s about real rescues. Each episode featured a few true stories of amazing rescues, stories of automobile accidents, medical emergencies, fires, choking/asphyxiations, miscellaneous injuries, with only a few exceptions the outcome of these emergencies where that all survived without serious injuries. At the end of each feature the viewer got a brief what-happened-next where the people involved in the accident emergency workers, victims and family members got together its from these set up meetings that the stills are taken.
