Neighbors shovel out path for ambulance stuck in snow
Two men answered a plea for help on Twitter and freed the ambulance from snow while paramedics treated a patient inside

BIRMINGHAM, England — Two men freed an ambulance that was trapped in snow after a call for help was posted on Twitter.
Birmingham Mail reported that the paramedics became trapped inside the ambulance, and a local community Twitter account, B31 Voices, posted an image of the scene, asking for someone to “bring a shovel.”
Two neighbors answered the call and cleared a path for the ambulance so the paramedics could get the patient inside.
West Midlands Ambulance Service thanked the men in a tweet and said the patient is doing well.

A big #thankyou to 2 young lads from Solihull who got out some shovels and cleared a pathway and the road so that we could get their neighbour out to the ambulance more easily. The good news is the patient is doing well. #bluelighthappy #neighbours pic.twitter.com/OBjGsWvdRy— WMAS (@OFFICIALWMAS) December 11, 2017
