Zurich paramedics attacked daily
Paramedics and ambulance crews in Zurich are attacked almost every day – and the level of violence against medical crews is rising.
Health authorities want to issue their staff with bullet and stab proof vests.
Suppliers are now being sought to buy enough vests for all of their 370 staff.
The Zurich rescue crews are called out 38,000 times a year – and are attacked 300 times. A spokesman says the situation is only getting worse.
