Johannesburg - A paramedic was stabbed eight times in an attempted hijacking in Vereeniging on Wednesday, paramedics said.

Paramedic Ryno Strydom, 30, noticed a man lying in the middle of Mario Milani Road and pulled over to help him, said ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak.

"The man then jumped up and two more men came running from the side of the road."

The three men pulled Strydom to the side of the road and stabbed him in the throat, chest, back and legs.

They robbed him of his wallet and cellphones before running away.

The paramedic found his way back to the road where his car was still parked, said Vermaak.

Strydom said he thought the men could not get his car started because of its immobiliser. He then drove about 12km to the ER24 base, where he collapsed on arrival.

He was treated and taken to hospital, where he was in a stable condition, said Vermaak.

Police were called to the base. Vermaak said he was not sure whether a case was opened.
