Alex Easton MLA has today condemned an attack on paramedics while trying to treat a patient.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I have to really question what our society is coming to when paramedics are attacked for tying to help someone, and to also be verbal abused by a crowd. This is a sad ordeal that these paramedics had to endure when all they were doing was trying to help someone, they should not have to endure such an ordeal and those responsible should be ashamed of their actions. I would thank the PNI for their help in dealing with this situation and also praise the bravery of the two paramedics for doing their job under difficult circumstances.”
