Medics from South Central Ambulance were left shaken and upset by the vile act of criminality
Tuesday 26th June | by Cop(ex)
On Wednesday 27th June, South Central Ambulance received a 999 call from someone who informed them that a 13-year-old girl was not breathing at a residential address in Eastleigh, Hampshire.
A Rapid Response Vehicle and emergency ambulance were immediately sent to the address as the medics onboard the vehicles prepared themselves for what could be a very harrowing & distressing call.
Ask anyone who serves in the emergency services about the most emotionally charged calls which they have to deal with and they will probably tell you that emergency calls involving children are without a doubt amongst the most distressing types of calls.
However, when the South Central Ambulance Medics arrived at the run-down address, it quickly became apparent that they had been called there under false pretences and that they had been lured into a trap.
A post on South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust Facebook page said:
“It beggars belief what happened to our staff in Eastleigh earlier this evening.
We received a 999 call informing us that a 13-year-old girl was in cardiac arrest at this property.
We immediately sent a rapid response car and ambulance but when they arrived they were met by a barrage of bricks, glasses, tables, chairs and other items from the upstairs windows – some of which can be seen in this photo below.
We of course informed the police as well as send more staff to the scene as the original vehicles were being damaged and the first responders we had sent were extremely shaken.
Police officers then had to gain access to the property to confirm it was a hoax call.
What makes this even worse is that all the staff and vehicles we sent were diverted from local people in genuine pain and distress with real illnesses, real injuries and real emergencies by our equally frustrated and appalled control room team.
So if you’ve been waiting longer for us this evening in the local area, this is the reason why.
Let’s hope the person/people taken away by Hampshire Police from the property are having the largest book at the local station thrown in THEIR direction.”
The identities of the individuals at the address are currently not known and we have been unable to find out any more details about them.
The post published by SCAS has been shared nearly 11,000 times with thousands of people berating the disgusting individuals who were responsible for this vile attack.
The individuals responsible for this attack MUST have their access to the emergency services withdrawn!
They do not deserve to ever have access to the thousands of brave men and women who dedicate their lives to saving the lives of complete strangers.
Those responsible are a stain on the record of humanity and really do represent the absolute worst that our civilisation has to offer.
We will keep and eye on this story and will bring you more information about those responsible as-and-when we get it.
