I was riding with Memphis FD doing internship and we put a 17 y/o preg female on the stretcher and it went from first to last position in about 10 sec with her on it. The crew apologized and put it back up and away we went.It was during an MCI drill with multiple agencies. Partner and I working an unfamiliar rig (yeah.. I know.. excuses, excuses) We had a high school girl on the stretcher who was one of the volunteer, fake victims. We pulled the gurney out of the rig and the landing gear didn't lock. The minute all four wheels cleared the rig.. Wham... the cot drops to the ground. Luckily the 'pt' was c-spined and backboarded and didn't get hurt. Just surprised us all.
I also have had a stretcher with no one on it be overturned by a pd officer anxious to help at a shooting.
Then I fell while getting in the unit once.:blush:
