Call a friend and not an ambulance

ambulanceIn case of an accident, an injury or any other serious health condition, I would always call a friend instead of an ambulance. Chances are high he or she is easier to reach, less occupied, faster at the spot and more reliable.

Proof for this theory I saw this morning at a red light. An old, spluttering ambulance crawled up from behind, the siren not working (or not switched on), the emergency light shining faintly. The driver honked, but no one gave way. Only when the co-driver jumped out of the car and chased the other cars away, had the ambulance the space to get through.
