HEARTWARMING gesture from a pair of Queensland ambos

A HEARTWARMING gesture from a pair of Queensland ambos has gone viral on social media after they treated a dying man to McDonald’s.
Gold Coast man Ron was being transported to palliative care yesterday afternoon when he mentioned he’d barely eaten anything in two days.
When the paramedics asked him if he was craving something, Ron told them he wanted a McDonald’s caramel sundae.
The ambos granted Ron his wish, stopping at a local Maccas to get him his ice cream and snapping a quick photo in the process.
QAS Gold Coast Assistant Commissioner John Hammond told Gold Coast Bulletinthat Ron’s story came right when Aussies needed to hear a positive paramedics story.
“Unfortunately people see and hear the doom and gloom side of things and that unfortunately is part of our job, but this is a really important part of the job that we think we are very good at. And it is why people join the job, for that level of compassion and care they show, above and beyond all the clinical stuff we do,” Mr Hammond said.
“People call an ambulance when they are at a low point and are quite vulnerable and this sort of stuff highlights that it’s the simple things and the level of compassion that make a really big difference to people.
“They (Gold Coast paramedics) are very professional and it’s good that they get the opportunity to do this sort of thing, because it eases the load off of them and they can feel a real positive from making a difference to not just the patient, but their family.
“Something so simple and easy to do does make a world of difference.”
