of the in­ci­dent is only one minute, 45 seconds long. Nar­rated by a woman speak­ing French, it shows peo­ple mov­ing to­wards the vic­tim’s car.

The paramedics’ ve­hi­cle has pulled in be­hind. The vic­tim is wear­ing a red shirt. The paramedics are be­tween the two cars with the axe-wield­ing at­tacker. One of the paramedics can be heard shout­ing “f**k off” as the crowd re­mon­strate with her.

The at­tacker tells the crowd “I’m not shout­ing” as he moves away from the scene.

The in­jured man moves to sit on the grass verge and ob­serves. One of the paramedics says “…You know, I’ll pack up my s**t and I’ll go”, and pro­ceeds to do just that.

The crowd re­mon­strate with her over her decision but make no move to stop her get­ting into the re­sponse ve­hi­cle.

At no time does ei­ther para­medic at­tend to the vic­tim.
