    A 25-year-old man has died after paramedics say an angry crowd prevented them from treating him in Sydney’s south.

    Paramedics were called to Iris Avenue in Riverwood where the 25-year-old was suspected of having suffered an overdose on Sunday morning.

    Five paramedics attended the scene but were not able to treat the man, who they said was in cardiac arrest.

    According to the Australian Paramedics Association, relatives of the man became “irate” and a crowd of “angry males” attempted to intervene, blocking those trying to administer treatment.

    Paramedics called for police to attend at about 7.45am, but the man was dead by the time they arrived.


    “We had the outrageous situation where a violent mob demanded paramedics hand over a defibrillator and drugs, saying they would treat the patient,” said APA secretary Steve Pearce.

    70 relatives show up to take drugs and a defibrillator away from the paramedics but.........none were there to take the drugs out of the 25 year old's hands?

    :eek:

    Googling CPR is not a life saving method.

    might have been 'africans' . I'll get the link if i can but according to an article i read 'african' yout were going crazy a week or so ago . Didn't say'black' , didn't say 'native or aborigine' , article said 'african' . --- 'African gangs' debate polarises Australia --- and now the info says 'australian - african' or maybe 'african-australian'. Pretty funny . ----------------- and this is not the same article i first talked about .
