Boston EMS Supervisor Attacked, Day After EMT Stabbed

SOUTH BOSTON (CBS) – For the second time this week, a person has been charged with attacking an EMT in Boston. The latest incident happened Thursday afternoon on Old Colony Avenue in South Boston. EMTs were called to a pizza shop for an unconscious woman when another woman tried to push past a Boston EMS supervisor to get inside the store.

State troopers were nearby in the rotary for a traffic stop and saw the struggle. Police said the woman, later identified as 37-year-old Donna Taylor of Boston, kept hitting the EMS supervisor and the two “ended up struggling in traffic on Old Colony Avenue at Preble Circle.”

As troopers rushed to help, police said several people on the sidewalk recorded video of the attack on their phones, instead of helping the EMT. MORE
