A D.C. woman who called 911 ended up getting out of an ambulance and taking Metro to a hospital after the paramedics started arguing, she said.

Rose Preston thought she was having a stroke when she began experiencing numbness and tingling on the left side of her face around 2:15 a.m. March 15. She called 911, but once she was inside the ambulance, two members of D.C. Fire & EMS began having a heated argument.

“They were constantly bickering back and forth with one another, and to the point that I felt so uncomfortable,” she said.

Preston wasn’t sure what the two men were arguing about but said it seemed to be personal.
