Video: Crazed man attacks medics at gas station

Police said the injuries might have been more serious if it weren't for a Good Samaritan

CENTRALIA, Wash. — Two AMR paramedics getting gas for their ambulance Saturday found themselves fighting a stranger.

Around 4:30 p.m. Saturday, police said another customer at the gas station yelled at the paramedics and tried to pull one out of the medic unit. The man was eventually arrested, but he did injure the paramedics. One suffered cuts to his eye and the man apparently bit the other medic in the arm.

Police said the injuries might have been more serious if it weren't for Vicki Disney. The social worker from Vancouver, Washington, was also getting gas. When she saw the man go after the paramedics, she thought someone might get killed.
