An Arizona resident who was exiting the hospital after receiving help for health problems relating to the extreme heat outside allegedly stole an ambulance so that he would not have to walk home in the high temperature.
When 37-year-old Todd Shell, a former basketball player for Arizona State University, became ill from the recorded 115-degree weather on Tuesday he went to the hospital for treatment.
After he was stabilized Shell left the hospital and went back into the hot weather but as he did not have a vehicle he realized that he would have to walk home. He allegedly spotted an ambulance that had recently made a drop off at the emergency room. It was still running but no one was inside of it.
