A pair of paramedics have received a furious backlash on social media after sharing a video of them dancing in the back of an ambulance.
Rhianna Higgins, 25, and co-worker Hattie Proctor spent their break boogying in the back of their vehicle while on duty for Yorkshire Ambulance Service.
Rhianna of Doncaster, South Yorkshire, uploaded the video to TikTok with the title: ‘Little boogie on break,’ and hashtags #999, #emergency, and #uniform.
The video, which has since been viewed more than 250,000 times, has split opinions online.
It shows the fully uniformed pair performing a dance routine in the back of what appears to be an ambulance.
But the prank backfired when hundreds of commenters criticized the health workers.
One unimpressed user wrote: ‘And people wonder why it takes three hours for one to turn up.
Another commented: ‘Now I know why my nan didn’t make it.’
Others questioned why they prioritized making TikTok videos and asked: ‘Shouldn’t you be saving lives?’
Another user added: ‘Wow god help us all if we call 999 when all they think about is TikTok.’
Although the cheerful clip prompted people to share their disapproval and write negative feedback, Rhianna’s dance also made others happy.
‘Great video, clearly states they were on a break! Probably trying to relax after saving a life!’ one said.
A woman wanted to share her support and left the following comment: ‘They’re on a break, can’t fault them.
‘8 minutes to get my dad and save his life 8 times over. Massive respect to ambulance services!’
Neither woman has addressed the comments since the TikTok video was uploaded.
Other clips shared to Rhianna’s social media pages feature fellow paramedics dancing and emergency vehicles in the background.
