What is Danny and Will’s escape plan?
Sometime after Danny and Will drive past the checkpoints in the ambulance, the police realize the scheme and SIS Captain Monroe orders his team to track down the ambulance using police helicopters deployed in the area. sky and promises Mark to bring his partner back to safety. What follows is a long cat-and-mouse hunt between the robbers and the authorities as police cars drive through town following the ambulance, but not attacking it due to the hostages inside. Meanwhile, Cam continues to provide emergency care to the injured policeman, and Will also gladly agrees to help by donating his blood. After a while, however, she realizes that Zach has lost way too much blood and that the only way to save him would be to operate on him and remove the bullets from inside him. Although she admits she is not a doctor, Danny is unwilling to listen as the experienced criminal has now realized that their hostage policeman must be kept alive as he is their way out of trouble. If Zach hadn’t been alive, law enforcement would have been much more aggressive in their approach.

All the while, there are times when Danny wants to get rid of the EMT, but Will’s insistence on keeping her safe keeps him at bay.
Anson Clark, an FBI special agent, is called to the scene, and the man reveals to Captain Monroe that he personally knew Danny at one time. Years ago, while getting his doctorate in criminology, Danny was one of his classmates and was sent there by his criminal mastermind father to understand policing and how officers work. from the FBI. Anson makes contact with Danny inside the ambulance via radio communication, but the latter is too smart to make a deal and makes it clear that they won’t stop the ambulance while the chase is ongoing. Danny calls Papi, the leader of a criminal gang his father had close ties to, and asks for help to evade the police in exchange for $8 million from the heist. Papi agrees, and together they hatch a plan in which Danny and Will would drive their ambulance to a certain location under a bridge by the Los Angeles River, where Papi’s crew would be waiting with reinforcements. The place also serves as a parking lot for out-of-service ambulances, and Danny’s plan is to confuse the cops with many ambulances leaving the scene at once. They work according to plan and eventually reach their intended location after surviving an explosive police chase. The criminals then let out ambulance vans as decoys while the real ambulance, now spray painted green, wards off any trouble. Papi’s gang also equips a van with detonators and drives it into a police roadblock before opening fire on the cops with a remote control car setup, killing Captain Monroe.
Danny and Will go to Grandpa’s secret warehouse, and Will asks Cam to stay inside the van to guard Zach, who has now regained consciousness. The brothers then go to meet Grandpa and give him a bag containing eight million dollars. But the gangster is informed of the presence of a policeman and a paramedic in his secret space, and he vehemently refuses to let them out. On the other hand, Will doesn’t want Zach or Cam to die, and promises to save them even if he has to fight Grandpa’s gang. Seeing the potential threat to his brother’s life, Danny pretends to have a fallout with him, then shrewdly leads Will into a shootout, wiping out all of Papi’s men and the mobster himself. Gunfire ensues as they head back down to the van, inside which Cam has now armed herself with a police gun that Zach found under his leg. At this point, Will suddenly opens the back door of the van, calling out Cam’s name, which surprises Cam, and in a similar moment of defensive reaction, she shoots Will in the chest.

‘Ambulance’ Ending Explained: Why Did Will Shoot Danny?
Danny now frantically drives the ambulance to a hospital while Cam provides emergency care for Will. The police again line up as they drive on open roads again, and Anson is still trying to get the situation under control. The ambulance van eventually pulls up inside the hospital compound, and it is quickly blocked by police cars and vans on all sides. Danny goes to the back to try to think of a plan to save his brother from death, as Will is obviously dying very quickly, and he now discovers Zack’s gun and thinks the cop shot Will . Cam quickly intervenes in his attacks and admits to shooting Will, albeit by mistake, and is now being held hostage by Danny. The man is enraged by the situation and promises to kill Cam outside in front of everyone, as he knows he would be killed anyway. However, as he opens the van door, Danny is shot from behind by a struggling Will, who now realizes that the only way to stop more bloodshed is to kill his brother. Danny falls dead to the ground as Will cries out in pain and grief; the police handcuff the injured man and leave him on the ground while they deal with Zach and Cam.

She supports the woman as she tearfully apologizes for her husband’s actions, then secretly puts a large stack of cash in her baby’s crib, as Will had instructed her to.

Although he was involved, he no longer wished to lose his life and constantly protected Zach and Cam from his brother’s fanciful plans to kill them. At that time, he is able to make Cam understand his situation and asks her to help provide the much needed money for his wife. Will doesn’t hate his wayward brother Danny either, as the two have a lot of good history together, right from childhood, but in the end understands that more innocent lives would be lost if he didn’t stop his brother. He eventually performs the difficult act of shooting his brother, although it could be argued that he should have done it much earlier in the plot.
