I enjoyed this description of the accident from the point of view of the ambulance driver. I found the differences in the way the police-officer and the ambulance driver approached the scene of the accident interesting. The police-officer was always wondering in the back of his mind how the accident had happened and who had been responsible, whereas the ambulance driver was concerned solely with saving lives.
I was surprised to read that ambulance drivers work 72 hour shifts. I think this would be hard, and perhaps make them more prone to making mistakes. Most people don’t function well on little sleep.
I was also a little surprised when the ambulance driver told the police-officer, who was giving one of the kids mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, to stop, and that the kid was not going to survive. i would have thought one would keep trying, but I guess the ambulance driver, with all his training and experience, could see that the injuries sustained were just too severe.
Again, what a horrible accident. Very scary.
