YouTube is chock full of football-related stretcher fails, but one would imagine they would be avoided with the use of a motorized first aid vehicle.
Not so in the Brazilian Campeonato Pernambucano on Saturday, when Sport Recife's 5-2 home victory over Belo Jardim was interrupted as one of the visiting players appeared to pick up an injury to the face.
He wandered off to the sidelines to be treated, but apparently, the first aid vehicle had already made it's way onto the field to bring him... face-fixing medicines and the option of a comfy stretcher. Yet it was the first aid vehicle that soon needed first aid of its own.
Take note, Alanis Morissette: this is irony. A traffic jam when you are already late and a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break are not. They are just unfortunate things. Jeez, Canadians.
