Man arrested after hijacking ambulance for ill girlfriend

He was sentenced to 20 days in jail for attacking an EMT and taking control of his vehicle in an effort to get his girlfriend to the hospital for treatment

CHINA — A man surnamed Shi has been sentenced to 20 days’ detention for hijacking an ambulance in coastal Fujian province last week.

Police said the man, whose full name was not released, had to serve time for assault and “disturbing order at a workplace” for attacking an ambulance’s driver and taking control of his vehicle in an effort to get his girlfriend to hospital for treatment.

The episode has sparked a debate online about whether the man did the right thing, with thousands of people commenting on his actions, most praising his determination to help his girlfriend.  “This just goes to prove that in China you have to do things yourself,” wrote one netizen.
