Queensland Paramedics Grant Dying Patient's Final Wish Of Seeing The Ocean One Last Time

Two Queensland paramedics have been praised for bringing a dying patient down to the ocean so they could enjoy the view one last time.

Local man Neil King saw the pair of paramedics wheeling the patient's bed to the water's edge at Cleveland Point Lighthouse in Brisbane.

He snapped a photo of the sweet scene and posted it to social media to celebrate Queensland Ambulance Service's actions.

"So grateful to our front line workers serving so kindly. The gesture was amazing but the kind words and lovely conversation they shared even more so," he wrote on Facebook alongside the image.
