Poor Van Service

Poor Van Service

Dear Editor;

As a resident of Far Rockaway, I am writing this letter concerning an incident that happened to me on Friday, July 27, 2001. I had been a patient in the New York Hospital of Queens, Main Street Flushing. After being discharged that evening from the hospital, the ambulette driver came to get me from the hospital to bring me home. After exiting the hospital there was another elderly patient on the ambulette to be taken to Crestville Nursing Home. After that drop off, I was moved to the back of the ambulette in my wheelchair and secured in place for transport. As the three male black workers entered the ambulette they turned on very loud rap music with no regards to me or my illness.

To make a long story short, I was appalled when the driver of the van stopped at a liquor store on Guy R. Brewieur Blvd., and went in. Leaving me to wait in a hot van.

My purpose of writing this letter is that we often come down on the G-man for his opinions. In which I may not always agree with, that day I realized coming home that we as people can be very vicious to one another.

I hope my letter would shine some light on the carelessness of some ambulette drivers.

LARRY R. WATSON
