An emergency ambulance belonging to the London Ambulance Service (LAS) was attacked as its crew treated a female patient who was not breathing.
The incident happened this afternoon (18th November) in Streatham. Life-saving paramedics had been called to an address after receiving reports that a female at the location was not breathing.
Whilst the crew tried to save the female’s life, a male took exception to the manner in which the crew had parked the emergency ambulance as they rushed to unconscious female’s aid.
The male then took it upon himself to try and smash the windows of the ambulance.
Metropolitan Police officers from Lambeth (E Relief) rushed to the scene and detained and arrested the male who continued to be abusive towards members of the emergency services.
It is not known if the male managed to damage the ambulance, requiring it to be withdrawn from service.
The condition of the female who was being treated by the medics is not known. Lambeth MPS tweeted:
“LAS were attending an address in Streatham this afternoon to a female not breathing.
“A male took umbrage to their emergency parking and tried to smash the ambulance windows.
“E Relief officers swiftly detained and arrested the abusive male.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
