This is the moment the Scottish Health Secretary puts a mobility scooter in Holyrood – as he runs to discuss Scotland’s ambulance crisis.
Hamza Yusuf had collapsed in the main hall next to the Holyrood debating hall on Thursday morning.
TV cameras were installed to capture the PSM in front of the Prime Minister’s questions.
Mr Youssef, who has been using mobility transport since his Achilles tendon ruptured while playing badminton, was arriving in Scotland to answer questions from the MSP about the ambulance crisis.
And the cameras captured the moment when the SNP minister was sent to steal the scooter – as a colleague ran after him with a pair of crutches.
BBC Scotland political editor Glen Campbell shared the clip on Twitter.
He posted it on Twitter with the caption: “Health Secretary @HumzaYousaf Not having a good day at work…”
Mr Yusuf, however, was unhappy with the political editor’s tweet.
Talking to social media himself, he said that there is no need to share the video.
He posted: “For all the media scrutiny and never shy away from it.
“I’m not sure whether tweeting a video of me falling while injured is not necessary or intentional.
“If someone else had fallen on crutches, scooted off their knees, or in a wheelchair, would your first instinct be to film them and tweet?” “
But the reaction she received after filming Douglas Ross in 2018 was a very different reaction.
At the time, he tweeted: “Best moment of the second half – Douglas Ross MP makes it better!”
“I can’t wait to see the meme…”
Social media users had a similar reaction to Mr Yusuf’s unfortunate downfall.
One person commented: “Awesome. The gift that keeps on giving. “
Another said: “Swear this is a parody video. “
Someone else posted: “Apparently the Danish health minister is walking around in the space hopper. “
comes after Mr Yusuf was charged with endangering his life To tell sick Scots to think twice before calling an ambulance.
The SNP cabinet minister was called “reckless” for his call amid heavy pressure on the 999 response service, with the average wait for paramedics rising to six hours.
He warned that the NHS is facing an “extraordinarily difficult winter”, adding that those who “pick up the phone to call 999 to call an ambulance” should ask themselves whether it is absolutely important”.
