An MDA team was assaulted Thursday night by a drunk woman whom they were called to treat. The Lachish branch ambulance team was called to a wedding in Ashdod to take care of a guest. The woman, who according to MDA attacked for no apparent reason, was arrested by police. The MDA medics required medical treatment following the heavy blows they took. They were then given two days sick leave to recover from the incident. MDA said that the organization viewed the incident very seriously, especially in light of the recent increase in assaults by patients against MDA emergency crews. They expressed hope that the attacker would be punished to the fullest extent of the law in order to prevent any recurrence of such incidents.
