[Ratings: Tues, 03.18.14] Busan Citizens Save a Mother and Newborn’s Lives on ‘My Heart Beats’
While it might be the most obvious thing in the world to many countries, most cars in Korea do not move out of the way of emergency vehicles, such as ambulances or fire trucks, as seen on SBS’ My Heart Beats.
Experiencing it firsthand, the stars of My Heart Beats, who work as volunteer fire fighters and EMTs at fire stations, have started a campaign to make the ‘miracle of Moses’ happen in Korea, in which cars split like the Nile River when an ambulance or fire truck has its sirens on.
Although the show’s ratings are fairly low, the campaign seemed to be working as seen on March 18’s broadcast, where a pregnant woman went into premature labor and was being transferred from Pohang to Busan, about a 120 km distance.
Luckily for the mother and baby, all the cars on the road began to move to the side, despite it being morning rush hour. The EMT, who escorted the mother, noted that in his three years of experience, it was the first time he has seen something like this happen before.
