Chicago hospitals have issued a press release warning Chicago residents to avoid having emergencies between 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. due to heavy traffic flows on city streets as well as highways. The release comes after an ambulance unit arrived two hours late to a call issued at 4:37 p.m. from a residence in Lincoln Park.
“We had to make the decision of taking the Kennedy or Lake Shore Drive up there, and boy did we screw the pooch on this one,” said Chicago EMT Zachary Hendricks. “We decided on I-190 and ended up sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic before finally arriving to the callers house where they had already done CPR themselves.”
The north-side family accepted the emergency responders’ apology only after hearing that the EMT riding passenger won an impressive 14 games of Words With Friends while sitting in the stand still traffic.
