‘Sleeping Beauty’ Who Arrived To Prom In An Ambulance Is Now In Big Trouble

Wait, what?! One of these things is not like the other.

Meet Ashvonn Russell, an artist who’s so sensitive about her ish that she rolled up to prom in an ambulance. No, she wasn’t driving. The Bahamian teenager was in the back, on a stretcher and in a coma…a love coma!

The shocking arrival was the result of a local Key Club holding a “Best Entrance” contest at her high school. Ashvonn and her date, John Auguste, figured they’d go for the win by pulling a Sleeping Beauty on their classmates. So an “unconscious” Ashvonn was carried out by paramedics and, just like the fairy tale, it was a kiss by her Prince Charming that brought her “back to life”!

The images from the arrival were shared on Twitter over the weekend, garnering nearly 8,000 retweets. The Lady Gaga School of Outrageous Entrances grad said she wanted to do something different and is always thinking outside the box.

[Thinking outside the box] is evident in all of my paintings and drawings, which are mostly inspired by fairy tales. Sleeping Beauty with a modern twist captured my interest for my prom entrance.

To those that have creative minds like myself, do not let the negativity stop you. Always dare to be different.

…despite the controversy it may bring. Some folks were not feeling tying up an ambulance for something as silly as a high school prom entrance contest. For that, Ashvonn ended up apologizing.

My hope for this theme was genuinely and solely to win best entrance by my unique style of entry and not for some of the negative attention and exposure it has received. For all the people of my great nation and around the world that I have offended, I apologize. It was not my intention to offend anyone.

But heads will still role because the Bahamas Public Hospitals Authority isn’t letting her extravagant entrance slide. Yesterday, they sent out a statement condemning the use of their emergency vehicles for silly stunts. They’ve also launched a full investigation into the matter.

The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) finds it despicable that an ambulance under the management of the Authority was used in the execution of a prom event in Marsh Harbour, Abaco at the weekend. The use of the ambulance is in direct contravention of the rules regarding the dispatching and use of emergency vehicles which should be dispatched solely for the purpose of medical transport.

All EMTs and ambulance drivers are well aware of the rules that govern the engagement of emergency vehicles. The Public Hospitals Authority has undertaken disciplinary action regarding the incident and further action may result following the conclusion of an investigation.

She may have won the contest, but somebody’s about to lose their jobs. She looked cute tho!
