TAREE, Australia — The father of a teenage man, who had both his legs severed when he was struck by a train, allegedly attacked the ambulance vehicle after they arrived to save his son.
Emergency services were called to Bushland Drive railway crossing in Taree on the NSW mid-north coast to find the 18-year-old on the tracks with his legs severed at about 4.30am on Sunday.
But police officers and paramedics who arrived, were forced to take refuge in the train driver's cabin, along with the 33-year-old train driver, after they were hurled with rocks by a group of people.
