A tenderloin mugging victim, left beaten and bloodied after her attacker realized she had no money, decided to seek out medical attention from some other downtrodden and financially strapped San Franciscans early this morning, Bay City News reports. According to an SFPD spokesman, after the woman realized she had been stabbed at around 3:45 a.m, her "husband came to the scene and they decided to ... take a cab down to the Occupy SF event because there's a medical tent there."
Of course, someone at the medical tent on Justin Herman Plaza immediately alerted the police, who promptly put the woman in an ambulance and shipped her off to a real hospital. So, let this be a handy reminder to injured folk around the city: The Occupy SF medical tent is neither an emergency room nor your personal first aid kit. The woman's injuries were considered to be non-life-threatening.
