Albuquerque, N.M. --  (KOB)  A paramedic sleeping in the back of his ambulance parked outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico's Lovelace Hospital went on a wild ride when the vehicle was stolen.

With the doors unlocked and the engine running, two people hopped in and took off.

The paramedic in the back narrates their wild ride on his call to 911. Pushing 70 miles an hour, they sped up Central street for miles.

Finally, the paramedic is able to escape by jumping out of the ambulance.

As the paramedic waits for an officer to meet him at a nearby Circle K, police start chasing the speeding ambulance.

They finally come to a stop, and police get on the loudspeaker to give them orders. When the couple refuses to turn around, the officers shoot their bean bags.

Officers are able to get the male driver in custody, then they call for the woman still inside. She shouts that she can't move.

When they finally get up to the ambulance, she says she's injured, even still wearing a hospital gown. Police arrested Mike Schildt and Alisa Quam that night.
