Ingenious machine saves lives in under 3 minutes

It’s an ingenious idea that has many Americans scratching their heads and asking: Why don’t we have those here?

An all-volunteer EMS group in Israel is saving countless lives with its fleet of custom “ambucycles” – motorcycles equipped to operate as ambulances on two wheels.

United Hatzalah, an Israeli emergency medical service, came up with the idea to quickly access and stabilize patients who are in need of fast and efficient emergency medical care. The vehicles, which can weave through traffic and reach patients in less than three minutes, have proven an invaluable resource as Israel deals with terrorist attacks.
