MANILA — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Guillermo Eleazar commended the Mountain Province Provincial Mobile Force Company (PMFC) for improvising an ambulance to bring civilian Larry Segundo, who experienced difficulty in breathing, to a hospital in Ankileng Sagada.

Dubbed as “The Cradle Swinging Ambulance” operatives of the Mt. Province PMFC used a bamboo stick and a cradle to transport the patient.

“Wala talagang imposible sa mga pulis na tapat ang pagsisilbi sa bayan. Nakakaisip sila ng paraan para lamang makapagbigay ng tulong sa mga taong nangangailangan,” an elated Eleazar said.

“Alam naman natin na sa probinsiya, sadyang hirap pa rin sa transportasyon. Pero hindi ito naging balakid para gumawa ng kabutihan sa kapwa. Itong ating mga pulis, kasama ang mga sundalo ng Charlie Company, 54th Infantry Battalion, ay agad namang umisip ng solusyon para madala sa ospital itong pasyente,” he added.

Earlier in the Municipality of Natonin, police officers used a blanket and a bamboo pole or pipe to create a makeshift stretcher, which was used in bringing a pregnant woman to the hospital.

Eleazar expressed hope that this action will inspire other PNP personnel to do the same.

“Napakagandang tingnan kung lahat ng ating pulis ay ganito, mabilis tumugon sa pangangailangan dahil sa pagnanais nilang makatulong sa mga kababayan,” said the PNP Chief. (AI/MTVN)
