(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Yet another round of public intoxication has resulted in rides to the local emergency department.
Security officers at the Victoriaville Mall located a number of drunken people.
It’s unclear just by observing what lead up to the situation, but what was clear is that two people were drunk to the point they could not walk, as first responders were carrying them onto the stretcher.
Paramedics with Superior North EMS responded with two ambulances and transported the two drunken patrons to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centres emergency department where they will be monitored while they sober up.
Sources indicate that people being sent to the emergency room for being drunk is quite possibly the most frequent call that paramedics respond to in Thunder Bay, far surpassing overdoses.
