RIP| She was sadly killed on duty, this is what happened

Being a paramedic is one of the most demanding jobs in South Africa, it requires a person to be on the road most of the time, it doesnt matter if its during the day or if its at night. The job is a 24 hour job and the main duty is to attend to injured victims anytime and anywhere they are.

It could be very risky to be on duty at night, but the paramedics have to do it. A 40 year-old woman named Phumzile Dlamini lost her life on duty, she and her colleague were shot and killed at around 01:00 at the back of their ambulance whole assistanting a patient who was shot.

The KwaZulu Natal based paramedic Phumzile was shot twice, she sadly lost her life on the scene and her colleague was shot three times and is currently in hospital fighting for her life.

She and her colleague were on duty when they were attacked. Phumzile was a mother to 3 children, a daughter aged 21 and two sons aged 19 and 12.

Its very sad that she was killed on duty, she was on duty, doing her job and couldn't be protected.

May Her Soul Rest In Peace.
