Thugs attack ambulance responding to 999 call.

Paramedics on a 999 call had the windscreen of their ambulance smashed with a brick as they treated a patient in Birmingham in the early hours.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service crew were treating a patient with severe abdominal pain in a property on Chipperfield Road in Hodge Hill at 4am earlier today. When the paramedics returned to their vehicle to take the patient to hospital they discovered that their windscreen had been smashed with a brick.

A second ambulance had to be sent to the scene to take the patient to hospital.

Nathan Hudson, the Trust’s General Manager for Birmingham, said: “This is an incredibly disappointing case which not only delayed a patients’ onward care in A&E but also means we have an ambulance off the road and unable to respond to 999 calls whilst it’s being repaired.

“Thankfully my staff weren’t hurt but they were understandably upset by the incident. Ambulance staff are here to help people in an emergency and it’s extremely sickening to see incidents such as this.”

Steve Elliker, the Trust’s Head of Security and Safety, said: “We have reported the incident to West Midlands Police and are working closely with them. I would urge anyone who has any information about this senseless act to contact West Midlands Police so that we can bring the perpetrator(s) to justice.

“Equally I believe it’s important to make the public of the West Midlands aware that any criminal damage to an ambulance is a drain on public funds”.
