Safety Lessons Taught In Blood

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Learning about safety probably shouldn’t require getting sprayed with fake blood.

The Art of Bleeding is a theatrical troupe that travels and teaches lessons on medical emergencies and safety from the back of a used ambulance in a very bloody, wacky way.

Creator Al Ridenour calls the show a “paramedical funhouse,” complete with a furry mascot named “Abram the Safety Ape” and a crew of sexy nurses who demonstrate medical safety using plenty of gore and fake blood.

Ridenour says, “It’s a safety education theme, but I think we’ve only accidentally taught people a few things. I don’t think the Red Cross would be happy with how we get our lessons across.”

The nurses record people’s stories of medical mishaps, which they post on their website.

The grisly tales of true life medical issues include one man who was caught in an industrial explosion that left his entire body riddled with metal shrapnel.
