At an age when many people are still trying to decide what to do with their lives, 19-year-old Christopher Kizziah is in the business of saving them.

When Kizziah was 16, he got his GED and began studying at Jefferson State Community College to be a paramedic.

In December, at age 18, Kizziah passed the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians exam on his first attempt. In 2007, the national registry reported that in Alabama only 38 percent pass the exam on the first try.

People in the emergency medical services field say few paramedics are as young as Kizziah.
