Nurse enraged after her car was stolen from the hospital parking lot during her ‘crazy’ 13-hour shift.
A NURSE on a “crazy” shift at an NHS hospital was shocked to discover her car had been stolen from the hospital’s parking lot.
After a long shift at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, south Wales, Aimee Price, 30, returned home to find her black Ford Kuga had been stolen overnight.
The mother of two was left stranded and unable to return home after working tirelessly throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
The nurse has posted photos of the stolen car on social media in an attempt to track it down, but she fears she will never see it again.
“I parked my car in a marked bay just before 7 and when I went out the next morning it was just gone,” Aimee told Mirror.co.uk today.
“I was completely taken aback.
I’m still in disbelief at this point.
“We work hard for nice things only to have them taken away from us like this.”
It’s just a car that can be replaced, but I’m furious.”
Similar incidents have been reported across Merthyr Tydfil in recent weeks.
Residents expressed their discontent on Facebook.
“Unbelievable,” wrote one commenter.
Someone steals your car while you’re working a night shift as a nurse in a pandemic.”
“This is absolutely disgusting,” wrote another Facebook user.
I can’t believe people have descended to this level of depravity.
“They have no regard for anyone other than themselves.”
It irritates me a great deal.
“You worked all night, caring for sick people, and these people waited all night for the chance to steal your car.”
“I’d love to hear they’ve been apprehended and are facing a lengthy prison sentence.”
“We can confirm the theft of a Ford Kuga from the hospital car park,” a spokesman for South Wales Police said.
“It was reported stolen just before 8 a.m. on December 2, 2021 by the owner, who is a hospital employee.”
“The owner of the vehicle had just finished a demanding night shift supporting the community through her role within the hospital, to leave and discover her vehicle had been stolen,” said police Sergeant Sara Jehu.
“I strongly encourage residents in the area to come forward with any information that will aid the ongoing investigation into the perpetrators.”
