Ambulance called out for dog having pups


AN emergency call to help out a 14-year-old in labour turned out to be a dog having pups. Paramedics were furious when they discovered t hat an emergency call-out for a Dundalk patient was in fact a hoax and a family pet was having pups.

A source was quoted saying “We could not believe that someone would call out an ambulance  to such a call. This is a service for seriously ill children and adults and we are working under great pressures right around the clock,” said a source.

They revealed that an ambulance and a rapid response car answered the call, and when they arrived the person in the house pointed them towards the dog. The call came on April 1, ambulance crews did not see the funny side.
