BUT WAS IT COVERED BY INSURANCE?

Ambulance that hit pothole on way to hospital may have saved patient's life, doctors say

(Thanks to pharmaross and Dave Roe, who says "We must save about a million lives a year, where I live.") (Also Rod Nunley, who says "Oh, great, now they have a reason not to fix them.")

Gotta love the call sign WOWT.

Authorities won't disclose where the pothole is .. so that street is not flooded by tourists and paparazzi, right?

I could see the new fad being "Name the Pothole" as a way to fund AEDs.

Actually, that might work.

Maybe it's time for them to invest in a defibrillator? I can see where this would work but it also makes for some p!ssed off paramedics when you do it. Don't ask me how I know.

The patient received the following bill from the ambulance company:

--Ambulance service--$150
--Emergency defibrillation services--$12,000
--Alignment of ambulance wheels due to emergency
procedure--$900

The amount of $13,050 is due immediately.

Cures constipation also.

Might shorten pregnancies too.

@Clankie--If the banging of a pothole doesn't cure constipation, the medical bills will.
