David Zullo


When David Zullo, EMT-P, RN, heard an electrical explosion and looked up to see a young construction man being electrocuted while working on the roof of a two-story building, he risked life and limb to climb a ladder and shimmy onto a narrow I-beam to prevent the worker from falling off the building. Zullo stayed on the beam for more than 20 minutes, supporting the weight of the injured man, until medical relief appeared. The worker survived, as did Zullo, a former marine who also volunteers as a New Orleans police reservist. (This is based on a yet unconfirmed 2008 ICA nomination submitted by former ICA winner Kerry Jeanice.)
