Video has emerged from Russia of what appears to be a person falling out of an ambulance while on the way to the hospital. Moscow Today reports that the person, identified as a patient, was being rushed to a hospital in Krylov when they fell out of the side door as depicted in this video:
It appears the man slid out of the ambulance and laid in the middle of the road. The vehicle that recorded the incident via dash cam came to a stop before striking the person. According to local media, the police never received a report of the incident and the ambulance company involved denied that the accident occurred despite the video evidence.
The circumstances of the person leaving the vehicle remains unknown. While it does not appear at first glance to be an attempted elopement, one does have to wonder how the sliding side door seemingly opened with ease and the person exited the vehicle without anyone being able to stop him.
Dash cams are widely regarded as recreational devices in Russia. Their proliferation throughout the culture has resulted in a number of incredible videos that otherwise could be considered urban myths and are often found on YouTube.
