Allina Health paramedic works magic in the back of his ambulance

[KSTP-TV, August 28, 2019] Allina Health Paramedic Ivan Mazurkiewicz runs on emergencies all over the north metro. And, in many cases, the most potent medicine might be in a little black bag he carries.

“I have lots of decks of cards, coins, balls,” Mazurkiewicz said.

A professional paramedic and an amateur magician, Mazurkiewicz finds a way to combine both in the back of his ambulance.

“I try and use magic as a way to break the ice a little bit. If you’re a kid, it’s very scary to be back there,” he said.
