South Central Ambulance Service, ambulance note goes viral


A similar incident in UAE would have seen the offender fined and jailed.

In bid to rush to attend to a medical emergency, ambulance crew in Lymingtom, Hampshire, hurriedly parked their vehicle which blocked the driveway of a resident. 

Instead of being compassionate, the resident decided to leave a rude note on the ambulance vehicle and branded them "dumb***". The note read: 'You are fully blocking my driveway'.

The South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) team was quoted as saying in BBC: "When our staff attend medical emergencies, they need to park as close as possible to the patient's house. Parking further away could add minutes to their arrival time that the patient they've been sent to simply doesn't have."

The SCAS posted the rude note on Facebook along with a caption: 'This sort of abuse is completely unacceptable'. The post went viral receiving hundreds of angry comments over the abusive note left behind.

One Facebook user wrote: 'Makes me ashamed to live in Lymington - welcome to block my drive anytime'. While another wrote: 'People are seriously on another planet surely!!! I would never dream of ever writing such nonsense in my life. By all means block my drive way! I don't care how late I was or what ever knowing that you are saving someone life which is much more important'!!
