Just now on Newstalk Pearce Doherty is describing an incident that happened last Tuesday.
A mother phoned the emergency services because her young son was unconscious.
There was only one ambulance on call and one of the paramedics was out sick. There was no cover.
The single paramedic drove to the house and when he got there he called for assistance. None was availible.
The single paramedic then had to to ask the mother to drive to the hospital while he attended to the
child in the back seat!
This all because of cutbacks.
In the same week when Healy Eames is of on a junket costing taxpayers 10's of thousands of euro to china
and the same week we find out that the guy running the gathering is on 170k a year!
well done Labour!
