Burger King - Vehicle Towed While At Children's Hospital
BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA -- On Sunday morning, 01/13/13 my 16 year old grandson was involved in a very bad auto accident and was taken by ambulance to Children's Hospital in downtown Birmingham, Alabama.
My husband and I arrived at the Emergency Entrance of the hospital around 2 A.M. We parked in a Burger King parking lot directly across from the Emergency Entrance. We were very worried about our grandson, who had a head injury and was bleeding badly. About 4 A.M. the doctor came out and told us that they had stopped the bleeding.
We left the hospital with our other three grandchildren, ages 6, 8, and 12 to get them home so that our son could stay with the injured grandson. We got outside the hospital; our vehicle had been towed away with no phone# to call to reclaim it. Got the # finally (frightening experience) Had to stand out in rain and wind and knock on the walk up order window for 10 minutes in downtown Birmingham in order to get the #. Cost $250.00 cash to get it back an hour and a half later. Lucky we had it.
From 2 to 4 A.M. parking lot empty. Really?? This is very bad public service.
