An experienced paramedic from the Darling Downs has spoken of his ordeal, after being violently assaulted while on the job.
Highfields Advanced Care Paramedic, Winston Lobegeier (pictured) was attacked by young male patient, when he attended a rollover crash on September 30th.
He says he never should have turned his back on the patient, who'd suffered a suspected head injury.
On average, one paramedic is assaulted each day in Queensland.
