Paramedic Shot By Injured Man He Was Tending
Paramedic Pays a Terrible Price For His Service
While paramedics often deal with intense medical situations in their ambulances, their altercations with criminals are usually less frequent. However, during a hospital run recently, a New York City paramedic was taking care of a patient when the man pulled out a gun and shot him.
On Wednesday, May 18, 25-year-old EMT Richard McMahon was taking a man’s medical history down en route to a hospital around 7:40 p.m. when the patient pulled out a pistol and shot him in the shoulder. The ambulance driver pulled over and the suspect jumped out the back. However, an off-duty police lieutenant and a retired NYPD detective quickly apprehended him and kept him contained until backup arrived.
