Patient flees as medics argue in back of DC ambulance
"They were constantly bickering back and forth with one another, said patient Rose Preston, who took a train to the hospital
WASHINGTON — A D.C. woman who called 911 ended up getting out of an ambulance and taking Metro to a hospital after the paramedics started arguing, she said.
Rose Preston thought she was having a stroke when she began experiencing numbness and tingling on the left side of her face during around 2 a.m. March 15. She called 911, but once she was inside the ambulance, two members of the D.C. Fire & EMS crew began having a heated argument.
"They were constantly bickering back and forth with one another, and to the point that I felt so uncomfortable," she said. Preston wasn't sure what the two men were arguing about, but said it seemed to be personal.
