The introduction paragraph of the news quotes the words of the brumby government to say that it is too rush to put the blame on the ambulance for the death and it functions successfully to introduce the following disputes from the parties concerned.
The first paragraph works to show the fact, who is died, why does he call the ambulance, when does he call and how many calls does he make, in order to make the readers understand the cause of the disputes.
However, before the coming out of the investigation result, an adviser to Health Minister only makes a short response on the issue, however, ambulance union secretary points out that the death could not be only blamed on the ambulance service, but it is an issue of social infrastructure.
Then the news introduces the death of man in detail. It introduces where the man lives, when he makes the first call, how many calls he makes before the dispatch of the ambulance and when the ambulance arrives. In addition, ambulance spokesman introduces their timely calls to the man to check his condition before the arrival of the ambulance. Both of the detailed introduction help further prove the shortage of the resources and act to support the words of ambulance union secretary.
In my opinion, the contents and disputes in the articles work effectively to reflect the problems in both the ambulance services and the shortage of the social resources. It quotes the words of different parties concerned, which helps back up the disputes and also helps attract the attention of the online readers and audience.
In all, the news is effectively elaborated from 2 angles. The first angle is the responsibility of the ambulance service and the second angle is the shortage of social resources, which will further arouse the deep consideration of entire society.
