Ambulance crew takes dying woman to see ocean one last time

An ambulance crew in Australia took a dying woman to the ocean to grant her wish to see the beach one last time.

A photographer cause the beautiful image of a paramedic standing next to her propped up on her gurney facing the sea.

A crew was transporting her to the palliative care unit of the local hospital when she made the request.

Above and beyond,the crew took a small diversion to the awesome beach at Hervey Bay to give the patient this opportunity – tears were shed and the patient felt very happy.
