Here’s The Scoop

THAT GUY’S DEAD!….

BCbythesea…and the BCbythesea…hubby & visiting eldest daughter….observed a serious act of bad judgment on the part of a EMS Pompano Beach ambulance…last evening….

On our way over the Commercial Blvd. Bridge…to check another restaurant off the BCbythesea daughter’s list of places to eat on her visit…we encountered the wait for the bridge….

The usual scene…cars backed up almost all the way to Seagrape…

Suddenly the siren….coming from A1A….

We turn and look…to see it coming…and see that the bridge is now going down….

We surmise…the driver will come up on the south side of Commercial…which is empty…. the bridge tender…has surely been notified…..(isn’t this what we have been told …when comparing AMR and BSO?)….they will open the gate on that side for the ambulance to cross over the small median on the other side of the gate…..and get out in front of the stacked cars on the north side waiting to go west….

Seems a no- brainer….right?……

WRONG!….

The driver did come up Commercial on the south side…just as predicted….but that’s where the obvious predictability….turned into …… total disbelief….

The south side arm was raised first….leaving a wide open exit….

check….

But this driver…for some unknown reason…chose to cut across from Benihana right into the “parked cars”…the side with the bridge arm still in the down position….

YIKES!…

Like a bad movie…the parked cars were stuck…the arm slowly rose…and the cars tried to move the best that they could….it was like watching a slow motion movie….

Time delay …….for no reason….to these observers….

BAD MOVE…for whoever their patient was….

we turned to each other…and in unison said….

“That guy’s dead!”….

AMR….take note!….
