Emergency Ambulance Hangs Precariously Over A Kerb
Even highly trained and experienced professional drivers have bad days at work.
And that includes drivers who have been trained to dart around town with blue lights and sirens roaring as they respond to emergency calls.
Most of us have an inner urge to experience what it is like to drive around on blue lights with sirens roaring and tyres screeching.
Maybe it’s because when we were kids, our parents would always get uber excited when an emergency vehicle came hurtling down the road especially if it was a fire engine that went whizzing by as our mum dragged us to the shops.
Or perhaps it has got something to do with the amount of videos games there are in existence where you can jump into an emergency vehicle and cause havoc in the virtual town that you are trying to take over.
But for most of us, the closest we will ever get to driving around on blue lights is in the surreal world of video games.
But for one emergency ambulance driver, an annoying kerb leading to a 3ft drop was enough to probably make them wish that, on this day at least, they were darting around an imaginary city in a video game rather than being at work.
Thankfully, nobody appeared to be injured in the mishap (apart from the wallet of the driver who will probably now have to buy some cakes for the rest of their team).
The chances are that the damage is minimal and will be able to be buffed out with a bit of elbow grease and some gitted determination.
Getting the vehicle out of its predicament is another story.
One of the most frustrating things about being in this situation is that you cannot get out of it without the help of a massive truck.
So as you wait several hours for the truck to arrive, millions of bystanders are going to be taking a picture of your predicament and uploading it onto social media for the whole world to see.
And it’s not as if you can leave the vehicle there.
You have to stay with it almost as if the vehicle is something you have hunted in the wild and now you are stood next to it, as everyone in the town makes their way to your location to take your picture.
And, as we all know, the more people who know about your mishap then, the more likely it is that you are going to make the local and even national news.
