A video of a man escaping from an ambulance in the US is going viral on the internet. In the video, the man, who is believed to be intoxicated, jumps out of the stretcher and run away to avoid medical intervention. The video of the incident was shared on TikTok by Meredith Scharinger with the caption, 'Bucks in 6 Baby'.
A man, dressed in a white T-shirt and Khaki shorts, began to move across the road, towards a bar and fell on a waiter before collapsing on the road. He didn't stop there. He stood up and resumed running. The reason for his flight from the ambulance is unknown at this time.
According to local media, the individual was intoxicated and required medical attention. Many people in the video's comments section believe he was trying to avoid paying for the ambulance ride, hospital stay, or medical treatment he received. It also sparked a conversation about healthcare costs in the United States.
The cost of a trip in an ambulance, even with insurance, can be as high as $450. Many people have commented on how dystopian the American healthcare system can be. A user wrote, 'He didn’t want the $900 ambulance bill.' Another person commented, ‘Americans when they realize they got no health insurance.'
The video has 8 million views and several thousand comments so far. On Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, the video has also been a big hit. Other users pointed out that it must have been a harrowing experience for the server, who collided with the fleeing man and spilled the entire meal on the ground. 'Imagine the waiter trying to explain what happened to his manager,' said another user.
