Was working a call, riding a Fire Rescue rig downtown, we had dropped off a patient at ER, were getting our rig back in service, re-supply, wiping up some dripping, another rig pulled in with a OB patient, had active contractions, dilation, water busted, gettin' ready to pop a kid, the crew off loaded the gurney and were wheeling her into ER, there was a small lip where asphalt transitioned to the cement ramp leading into the door. The parameds were at each end of the gurney and hit that small lip at a bit of an angle, the gurney wheels on one side caught it just wrong.
The gurney tipped and fell over and that lady delivered on the spot, with hubby watching too.
Only time I've ever had to go to court. But everybody was in trouble, medics, ambulance company, the hospital,...... welp.
