Medic pays parking ticket for grieving daughter
He opted to pay the $129 upon finding the ticket in an ambulance after transporting the woman's mother, who later died
VICTORIA, Australia — If you found someone else's parking ticket, would you pay it?
Marc Primrose did. After finding a parking ticket belonging to Rosemary Morgan, whose mom he had transported in an ambulance last month and who had died shortly after their meeting, the Australian paramedic-in-training opted to pay the $129 fine instead of adding to the woes of the family.
“It was my instinct not to just let this go because someone would have ended up with late fees and I didn’t want that to happen,” Mr. Primrose told The Whittlesea Leader, an Australian newspaper. “I’m just glad that it helped.”
