A paramedic stabbed a colleague from another company at an accident scene on the R55 yesterday. According to reports, the incident occurred after the men argued. One medic went to the response car and came back with a knife.
Yusuf Abramjee shared the post on his Twitter page and left social media users horrified and confused.
According to Jacaranda FM, Robert Mulaudzi EMS spokesperson, said:
"I don't belong to the organisation but I believe that I have a responsibility to apologise. This is a criminal act and we cannot work like that"
The video shows what looks like the aftermath of the incident. Twitter user HlogiVester said:
"I'm not really surprised. That paramedic must be charged with attempted murder and the HPCSA must strike his name off the register, he's a danger to our society."
While Mmatona_ntuane said:
"I’m not surprised. Possibly fighting over who must transport the patients and ultimately claim from government."

It was gathered that the union had tried to talk to the South African Police Service and the national Health Department, but to no avail.
