HOUSTON (KTRK) -- It is information no one would want scattered on
papers in a parking lot, much less thrown away in a dumpster for
anyone to find. Medical records were found behind a 99 Cents store in
southwest Houston putting people's identities at risk.

"This has got Social Security numbers, Medicare numbers. That's pretty
serious," said the man who found the documents.

Dozens of documents with sensitive personal information were dumped. A
self-proclaimed dumpster diver who wants to remain anonymous found
them.

[..]

The files are from Express EMS Services, an ambulance company. There
are names, date of births, addresses and social security numbers.
