A California medic who posted photos of a badly injured motorcyclist on Instagram is being sued by the victim’s family. The photos of the victim’s badly mangled leg is not all that upset the victims family. The family is also upset about the hashtags that accompanied the photos.
The accident occurred earlier this year in Vallejo, involving a paramedic from Falcon Critical Care Transport who reportedly posted the photos along with a comment:
“This is what happens when you’re careless in the rain on a motorcycle” #byebyeankle, #thelouderyouscreamthefasterwego and #oncethedoorscloseyourassismine.
The victim suffered catastrophic injuries but survived, although he lost one leg. When his family learned of the photos and comments and complained, the medic removed them and apologized.
