Jan. 15, 2013 - PRLog -- DETROIT -- In the developing world, ambulances are some of the most coveted items. Sick people are being carried for miles on the backs of their caring relatives, or endure bumpy rides on donkey carts in an effort to find care in faraway hospitals. In Africa you can see heavily pregnant women walking for days through the savannahs, taking a chance that lions do not catch up to them before reaching the safety of the maternity clinic.
