Ambulance used to ferry passengers

The Shanghai Airport Authority will punish staff who used an airport ambulance to pick up passengers at the Pudong airport with the alarm light flashing.

The ambulance with a local car plate was seen by witnesses picking up about six passengers. Someone in uniform got out of the ambulance to help load the luggage.

The ambulance also stopped on the no-parking zone near the waiting area for shuttle buses.

A video of the incident was posted online on Saturday night. The post has been reposted about 3,000 times with over 800 comments.

The Shanghai Medical Emergency Center said yesterday that the ambulance does not belong to it.

The airport authority has confirmed that the ambulance is owned by the Pudong airport.

An investigation was conducted after the incident was exposed.

Unauthorized use of an ambulance can lead to suspension or dismissal of the person or persons responsible and their supervisors.
