Unconscious child left waiting due to 'Inconsiderate parking' in housing estate

Units from Dublin Fire Brigade were delayed in their attempts to get to an unconscious child yesterday due to what they said was “inconsiderate parking” in a Dublin housing estate.

Emergency services were responding to a call when they were forced to re-route due to parked cars blocking their way.

It is not the first time Dublin Fire Brigade have been forced to take an alternative route when responding to an emergency call, and speaking via their Twitter account a spokesperson said: “We were delayed attending a unconscious child in Booterstown earlier due to inconsiderate parking.

“Fire Engine and Ambulance forced to reroute.”

Residents are urged to be mindful when parking their cars in estates.
