An investigation has been launched after a patient fell out of an ambulance at high speed on the AP-7 motorway while she was being transferred between two hospitals. The incident occurred between Alicante and Valencia.
According to reports in local media, an eyewitness travelling behind saw a large object falling out of the ambulance and warned the ambulance drivers, who hadn't realised what had happened, by flashing his lights. The witness allegedly wanted to call the police but said that the wounded woman was put back in the ambulance and driven off. It was unclear how the mental health patient was able to get the doors open.
