Ever done a corn maze? They can be surprisingly hard and REALLY frustrating . . . like, once you're a little bit in, you just kinda want to get the hell out of there. Now imagine doing one in a CRITICAL situation.
An elderly woman in Braintree, England was doing a corn maze with her family on Tuesday, when she FELL and broke her arm. So her family called 911.
The paramedics knew they had to get her to the hospital quickly because of her age. But to make that happen, they had to SOLVE the maze . . . and do it fast.
Fortunately, these paramedics turned out to be exceptional at problem solving and spatial reasoning . . . they managed to get to the woman and stretcher her out without TOO many maze-related delays.
The woman was rushed to the hospital for treatment.
