CHESHIRE, England —EMS officials issued a response to the man who was filmed shouting obscenities at paramedics because they were blocking his way.

Liverpool Echo reported that the North West Ambulance Service responded to the man after the video went viral, and offered to explain “how every second counts when saving a life.”

“This man needs to ask how himself how he would feel if it was his grandparent, mom, dad or child that we were treating, would he be happy that we waste precious time searching for a better parking space?” a spokesperson said. “Our staff work day and night to save lives and do not deserve abuse from anyone for something as trivial as blocking a minor road. What was a minor inconvenience for him was a traumatic time for this patient and if he would like to get in touch so we can explain how every second counts when saving a life, we would be happy to arrange this.”

A woman claiming to be the driver’s daughter posted on Facebook that he was not actually shouting at a paramedic, but at someone else out of the camera’s view who was “going at him.”
