Specialized Ambulances

This is kind of amazing - Boston has retrofitted an ambulance for the extremely obese:

The ambulance is equipped with a special stretcher that can hold 850 pounds and a hydraulic lift with a 1,000 pound capacity

The part that made me do a double take though - a spokesman was quoted on the need:

The ambulance is likely to be needed two to four times a week, he said.
