On Thursday, two paramedics were ambushed and held at gunpoint while responding to a call in the Better Life area.

A black Citi Golf cornered the ambulance and two gun-wielding suspects approached the crew.

They shattered the window of the driver’s side of the ambulance, opened the door and stole the paramedics’ cellphones, wallets and a bag.

This past Monday, paramedics were held at gunpoint in Mitchells Plain and over the weekend an ambulance was stoned during a protest in Khayelitsha.

Metro EMS spokesperson Deanna Bessick: “Attacks on the Western Cape’s health emergency medical services have increased since the end of March this year.

There have been 19 attacks on EMS officials from 1 January to 30 April this year.”
