A Detroit EMS crew was left with no ambulance after two teenagers allegedly stole the vehicle while paramedics were responding to an emergency at a nursing home, reports.

Police say two teenagers -- ages 14 and 16 -- stole the ambulance on Tuesday, making off with the crew's life-saving equipment inside the truck.

"Most of our vehicles are equipped with anti-theft devices in which if somebody attempted to, the truck would shut down, but in a handful of vehicles, those devices aren't functioning," Wisam Zeineh of the Detroit EMS Association reportedly told the station.

The two suspects were quickly apprehended and arrested but have yet to be charged, according to the station.

Another ambulance was reportedly deployed to transport the patient and rescue the stranded crew.
