Ambulance transporting patient stops to pick up hitchhikers

The patient had a blood clot, and filed a complaint after the crew stopped for the pair because they were on a dangerous road


CORNWALL, England —  An ambulance crew taking a man to hospital stopped to pick up two hitchhikers on route.

The crew carrying 60-year-old blood-clot patient Glenn Buscombe stopped on the A38 near Carkeel roundabout in Cornwall to pick up the woman and man.

Confirming what happened, South Western Ambulance Service said it was because the pair were on a "dangerous" road and they were "doing the right thing." Mr Buscombe has since made an official complaint to the ambulance service.
