Woman Transports Herself To Hospital After EMS Argument
Rose Preston of Washington, DC, thought she was having a stroke when she began experiencing numbness and tingling on the left side of her face around 2:15 a.m on March 15th.
So she called 911. – like any other individual in distress right?
But once inside the ambulance, Preston noticed that two members of D.C. Fire & EMS began having a heated argument.
“I didn’t feel safe being transported by the vehicle,” said Preston, an Army veteran.
Feeling a little better after receiving the oxygen, she got out of the ambulance, and took public transportation to the hospital later that day.
She found out she has Bell’s palsy and it WAS a medical emergency. She’s okay and D.C. Fire & EMS confirmed they are investigating the incident but did not comment further.
This isn’t the first time the Fire and EMS department has been under scrutiny. Back in January, a 77-year-old man collapsed right across the street from a fire station. His daughter pleaded with a firefighter to respond but was told to call 911 instead. The 77 year-old died during the incident.
