When carrying a player off on a stretcher is harder than it should be

The simple task of carrying an injured player off in the 75th minute of a Portuguese third division match between Academico de Viseu and Sanjoanense turned into a comedy routine when the two stretcher carriers couldn't figure out how to smoothly carry a stretcher. We have, of course, seen examples of this before and thankfully, their difficulties did not lead to the injured player getting dumped off his ride.

The one carrier falling over and sitting on his hurt leg once they got him over to the to the touchline didn't help matters, though. Don't we have robots that can do this job yet?
