NEW YORK — A patient who was described as “emotionally disturbed” survived a jump from a moving ambulance.
NY Post reported that FDNY paramedics were transporting the unidentified man from a medical clinic to a hospital when he jumped from the back of the ambulance, according to officials.
The paramedics said they slammed on the brakes and carried the patient “back into the same ambulance — now with more serious injuries.”
Attorney David Schwartz said he was driving behind the ambulance when the incident occurred.
