The trio then shared their dinners in the back of the ambulance with one Nick saying that he would take him to hospital in order to help him get the care he needs to return to normal life.
Ambulance – Viewers became emotionally involved when Paramedic Nick and Nick treated a patient to a McDonalds after finding out he was homeless.
The act of kindness marked the end of the episode when the pair were called out to a moundland in Barking after a man was attacked.
Then it transpired that 31-year-old Gavin was assaulted after being accused of trying to steal from the store. The security guard injured him as he tried to steal a package of biscuits so he could eat them.
The man then explained that he had depression and had become ‘voluntarily homeless’ after leaving his other half to avoid arguments in front of his two-year-old son and had lived in an abandoned building.
It had been six months since his son had not eaten in over a day and was just hungry.
Nick and Nick then decided to help him out and ran to a nearby McDonalds to grab something to eat for Gavin.
Gavin was seen crying by the act of kindness – initially turning down it because he did not want to impose before taking a Big Mac meal.
The trio then shared their dinners in the back of the ambulance, with one Nick saying he’ll take him to hospital in a bid to help him get the care he needs to get back to normal life.
The audience was deeply touched by the gesture and Nick and Nick praised for their decency towards the mighty man.
The London Ambulance Service also received the news of Nick and Nick’s appearance on the show and praised the couple for the moment.
They wrote: “Nick and Nick’s manner and compassion with the patients… We’re so proud to have them in #TeamLAS”.
