Yet another attack on a paramedic..  this time in Nowra on Saturday night..

Two paramedics were on the receiving end of a violent allegedly intoxicated man who was in the back of their ambulance being taken to hospital.

GARY WILSON from the Paramedics Association says it's a trend that's getting worse.. " The attacks on paramedics are increasing and they have been for some time, and you're right it is a very disturbing trend. There's no excuse for assaulting emergency workers. Drugs and alcohol are a significant cause and what we need to do is, we need to make people aware of this and make them responsible for their actions, even when they're under the influence."
