Ambulance crew attacked in Southill

Two Limerick ambulance crew members are recovering this morning after they were attacked in the Southill area last night.

The crew were responding to reports of a drunken 14 year old girl in the area when they were set upon by three men.

RTE reports that one of the crew had to receive hospital treatment for a minor head injury.


Michael Walsh, from the Health Services Executive, said: "We are very distressed at the attack on our ambulance crew. . . . the bottom line is that we are dependent on the decency of the public in situations where our ambulance personnel have to go in situations like this in an attempt to save life."
