The two West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) paramedics who were stabbed after responding to a call for help, are continuing to recover from their horrific ordeal.
Paramedics Deena and Mick had been called to a residential address in Wolverhampton on 8th July to carry out a ‘safe and well check’.
But as they entered the property, they were both stabbed by the occupant.
Deena was stabbed in the chest and remains in hospital. Mick continues to recover from his injuries at home.
Their WMAS colleagues have set up a crowdfunding page to help the two paramedics as they continue with their recovery.
The page has been set up by Natalie Ravenscroft who also works for WMAS.
‘On Monday 6th July 2020, two of our much loved friends & colleagues attended a patient who carried out a horrific attack on both paramedics, stabbing them before being tasered by the police on scene.
‘Both paramedics were severely injured and required life-saving treatment from their own friends who attended when the emergency call came through.
‘This attack has left both Deena & Mick with not only physical but mental scars, wounds that will take much longer to heal, and as their colleagues, we can not even begin to imagine what they are going through right now.
‘This page has been created in order to raise money for them both through any donations you may wish to make, even a donation as little as £1 each will build up and allow Deena & Mick to take the time they need to recover.
‘This will also help ease the financial pressure of returning to work when they may feel they need to and allow them longer to heal.
‘We are all in this together, one big blue light family! We all do this job because we care… no one deserves to be attacked while trying to help someone in need!
‘Please remember… sometimes its ok NOT to be ok! Xxx’

Meanwhile, the police officer who was stabbed as he responded to calls of a male who was armed with a knife in Glasgow on Friday 26th June is also continuing to recover from his injuries.
PC David Whyte ran into the scene of multiple stabbings with his colleagues, to prevent further injuries and to try and save lives.

As a result of this, he sustained several stab wounds while trying to stop the assailant.
PC Whyte required emergency treatment at the scene, and surgery in hospital afterwards, to save his life.
He now faces a long and challenging recovery as he works back to fitness, and returning to the job that he is dedicated to.
A JustGiving page set up to help David has thus far raised £3040 and is 60% towards its target of £5,000. CLICK HERE to visit PC Whyte’s JustGiving page.
