Two years ago, a firefighter was assaulted and died while trying to rescue a drunk and fallen man on the road.
The perpetrator, who had been imprisoned for that, was released a while ago, and again, he suffered and defeated the paramedics.
It is pointed out that even though paramedics try to help others and the right thing is repeated every other day, the level of punishment is still too light.
First, reporter Yoo Su-hwan.
man lying on the road throws an object at the paramedics and tries to take off his jacket and pants.
The man who was drunk at the dispatched paramedics, swearing and raging for more than 40 minutes.
It turned out that it was Yoon-mo in her 40s who assaulted the late firefighter Kang Yeon-hee in Iksan, Jeollabuk-do two years ago.
He was sentenced to 1 year and 10 months in prison at the time, but soon after he was released, he also suffered an imprisonment against the paramedics.
[Kim In-joong/At the time, first-aid personnel dispatched: I was only trying to harm us, the only paramedics. Two years ago, our fire department said that he (the late firefighter Kang Yeon-hee) was related to him.]
Yoon was arrested as an active criminal and handed over to the prosecution, but the paramedics were forced to show up two years after his colleague's death. I can't hide my weakness in appearance.
[Eun-ae Jung/Yeon-hee Kang, high school firefighter colleague: My heart was stuffy and my stomach hurt like a twist. And we get hit again... . I felt helpless, without any improvement.]
Over the past five years, the assault damage by paramedics has been repeated every other day, and 90% of the perpetrators were drinking alcohol.
Nevertheless, punishment was only at the level of a cotton bat, 40% was fined, and imprisonment was less than 1 in 10 cases.
Even 30% received no punishment.
[Choi Tae-sung/higher Kang Yeon-hee, fireman's husband: It seems that people who keep doing that are repeatedly (assaulted), but I think that such things should change by improving the laws and systems.]
While working for the safety of the citizens,
protect myself properly. What cannot be received is the current address of the Korean paramedics.
