A Philadelphia Fire Department medic is facing discipline following the posting of a video on Facebook showing him texting while driving an ambulance to the hospital.
The video was posted by Ebony Clarke, the mother of a patient, Jeron, who was being transported to the hospital for a head injury. Clarke was in the ambulance with Jeron, took the video during the transport and posted it on the Channel 6 Action News Facebook page.
Reporters from Channel 6 showed the video to Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Derrick Sawyer, who is now investigating the incident. Commissioner Sawyer told Channel 6 “We are going to identify the person in the video and we are going to bring him in. We’ll discipline him.”
