An ambulance crew in Birmingham was greeted with an unwanted note after they tended to a patient in a serious condition.
While staff from the West Midlands Ambulance Service were treating a man in the back of their vehicle, a neighbour took it upon themselves to complain about where they had parked.
Casually placing a note under the window wiper of the ambulance, the individual claimed they had parked the van "in a stupid place" which was blocking their drive.
This completely thoughtless message was photographed by the paramedics and then later tweeted out with an explanation and the hashtag #patientscomefirst.
It was also shared by paramedic Tasha Starkey.
Many Twitter users have reacted with disgust and outrage to the note.
Unfortunately, it seems that this type of incident isn't uncommon.
The Mirror report that the patient was taken to Heartlands Hospital in Bordesley Green.
A spokesperson from WMAS explained the events to the paper:
The patient was in a critical condition, but sadly we have no way of finding out what their current condition is as they are no longer our patient.
The crew were on scene for less than 30 minutes.
They blue lighted the man in and asked for medics to be on standby to receive the patient immediately upon their arrival.
