In a wholesome switch of roles, average citizens came to the rescue of their heroes when they worked together to help Lebanese Red Cross members/volunteers get out of their overturned vehicle.
On Saturday evening, a Lebanese Red Cross ambulance turned over on its side near the airport road in Beirut while it was on its way to aid an injured person.
There were reports of an accident on the airport road between a motorcycle and a car, which left at least one person injured.
The Lebanese Red Cross was on its way to the scene but, according to a witness at the scene, the ambulance flipped over while turning a corner quickly.
Civilians nearby rushed to help, climbing the overturned vehicle, and working together to rescue the LCR members/volunteers, pulling them out of their overturned vehicle.
The damage was limited to materials, and luckily no one inside the ambulance was hurt. However, the accident caused some traffic.
