So talk about the ultimate money maker. People would rather gamble than eat.

"Lee anticipates that the first betting kiosks should be ready and installed by the end of the summer, bringing in much needed revenue to the small struggling ambulance company.

"Gas ain't getting any cheaper" Lee said, who went on to explain that betting would only be offered to those patients that call the ambulance for "stupid reasons" which he admits accounts for 80 percent of their business."

"People may remember City Rescue from an article a few months back when Lee announced he was installing "dancing poles" in the back to offer "Vegas style entertainment" during transports.

"Yeah," Lee explained, "I realized there just wasn't enough room to do the really cool pole tricks.""

This guy sounds like the founder of Ryan air. The founder of Ryan air would throw these ludicrous ideas out just to get press for the airline. Seems to work.

Have you been around the internets today? It is downright shameful the number of people who are taking all of the "news" seriously.

I'm not trusting anything I see on the internet, TV, and Facebook today lol.

I'm debating on calling dispatch when they give us a call and saying "Ahhhh April fools!! You guys got us good!"

Heck I think it's a great ideal. All the people who abuse the ambulance would actually be paying for their transport with all the money they would waste gambling.

Oh and Aidy it was clear it was a prank news post. Pointing it out once was plenty. Thanks.
