Other mistake: In the final scene where the police chief is barreling through the hospital on his bed, he goes along a straight path, yet when the two inspectors and the assistant come down the stairs they come out the side of the corridor. If the police chief followed a straight path, how did they come out of the side of the corridor, and how did the bed turn around a 90 degree corner at that speed?
