After Black Lives Matter movement activists protesting Sunday evening on a highway bridge near Memphis, Tennessee, maliciously blocked a family with a sick child from getting through and the family had no option, but to dial for help.
“We received a call there was a child needing medical attention stuck in traffic up on the bridge, and due to the protest going on the bridge, the family was not able to get through traffic to get him to Le Bonheur,” local paramedic Bobby Harrell explained to WMCA.
Harrell and his team had to be escorted up the wrong side of I-40 to reach the child, after which they had to drive another 25 miles out of the way to get to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
According to WMCA, “Harrell said he got the child to Le Bonheur just in time,” suggesting that the sick child may have possibly died had paramedics not arrived on the scene fast enough. In other words, the obstinacy of the self-absorbed protesters on I-40 this Sunday may have almost cost a young child his or her life.
Apparently, children’s lives don’t matter to the movement.
