An ambulance "lost" his patient on the street during the hospital run: the accident was recorded in a video that immediately went viral on the web.
During the journey to the hospital, a patient fell from a running ambulance and lay on the asphalt. The accident took place in the city of Novomoskovsk, in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast region in eastern Ukraine. The driver of a car that was traveling on the same road in the same direction of travel, who was immediately behind the emergency vehicle, filmed the entire scene with his video camera placed on the dashboard. The clip shows the car traveling along the same road as the ambulance in front (fortunately at moderate speed), when suddenly the emergency vehicle's doors open, letting something fall.
The driver starts honking and slowing down as he approaches the object fallen on the road, which turns out to be the patient. The man can be seen lying on the asphalt while the driver of the car continues to slow down and honk his horn to attract the attention of the health workers before stopping the vehicle, going out and walking towards him. Immediately afterwards, two of the ambulance operators go to the patient to provide him with help again.
It wasn't an "accident"
Local media reported that in the accident the patient found himself with some head hematoma. The authorities did not want to confirm why the man was taken to the hospital by ambulance. However - according to information found in some local media - the man seems to have received help because he was drunk. Furthermore, it appears that it was not an "accident".
According to reports from some local sources, it seems that at first the patient refused admission to the hospital and - probably because of this - it seems that he himself opened the doors of the running ambulance, ending up on the street. Finally, after rescuing the patient again, the paramedics accompanied the man to a local hospital with the presence of the police.
