“While on scene, the crowd began to become even more violent, threatening emergency personnel so with the assistance of the South African Police Services, the patient was loaded into the ambulance and transported to another location when an advanced life support paramedic could start treating the patient.”


Herbst says the man was then rushed through to hospital.


“Circumstances leading up to the incident will be investigated by the relevant authorities who were on scene,” he adds.
