Paramedics forced to leave gun victim to die after being ‘shot at’ by gangsters while trying to treat him
Gunned down: Isaiah Gardner, 21, who was nicknamed Ziggy, from Brixton, died after being shot in the head
An ambulance crew treating a man who had been shot in the head had to flee after they feared they were under fire – losing vital minutes which could have saved his life.
Isaiah Gardner, 21, died from his injuries in a garden on an estate in south-west London yesterday morning.
It is thought that the paramedics may have been attacked to prevent saving his life.
The window of the ambulance was shattered and paramedics were briefly forced to leave the scene, returning only when the area was deemed safe.
Two men were arrested last night over the killing, said police.
lol… what was that again? ‘our boys in Afghanistan take fire every day and they don’t run away’…
err… yes… but they can fire back… we can’t… neither can our Paramedics…
PS… this is not an anti-troop rant… I think anyone that shoots at our boys is plain dumb… I’ve seen them in action-and I wouldn’t want to fight them… 😉
