Two emergency medical technicians were caught on video grabbing some food at a White Castle instead of answering a dispatch call.


I just came across this on NBC10 Philadelphia, and couldn't believe it. Perhaps it is because I have friends who are EMTs and take their jobs very seriously.

Reportedly, these two EMTs were caught on Periscope, a live-streaming video service, ignoring a dispatch call to pick up some food at White Castle.

I understand if they were hungry, but c'mon guys, that phone isn't ringing for a friendly hello!

According to NBC10, both EMTs have submitted their resignations after Newark hospital officials discovered the video. Originally, they were only facing suspension without pay.

Thankfully no patients were harmed because these two guys were hungry..excuse me, 'delayed.'
