Handcuffed Woman Jumps Out Of Moving Ambulance, Vanishes

‘A handcuffed woman being transported for treatment after she was taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies jumped out of a moving ambulance, ran into some woods and vanished, according to Orange County sheriff’s deputies.

Investigators said Lisa McCoy, 34, was picked up Wednesday on an outstanding warrant. She was wanted for failure to appear on a petty theft charge.

When McCoy was taken into custody, she complained she was having a panic attack, police told Local 6 News.

Deputies handcuffed the woman and an ambulance was called to take her for treatment.

Officers said a paramedic was supposed to be watching her during a trip to the hospital.

“He moved to the front to call in the transport and when he did that, that is when she jumped out,” Orange County sheriff’s Sgt. Roland Rivera said.’
