MARIETTA, Ga. -- Some Cobb County residents say they are amazed at the huge reaction they've been receiving from all over the world after they helped free an ambulance from the ice last week.
The ambulance was on a call, transporting a woman in a medical emergency, and could not get up the slippery hill -- until people who live nearby jumped in to help.
Residents of the Rosemont City View Apartments in Marietta did everything they could to free the ambulance.
"Everybody just started scraping the ground, clearing all the ice, pushing the ambulance," said one resident who helped, Sergio Ruelas.
It took nearly 90 minutes before the ambulance had enough traction to get up the hill with the woman inside who needed to get to the hospital.
