Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

A Chicago Fire Department paramedic was injured Thursday afternoon when a man threw a brick at an ambulance about 12:45 p.m. near the intersection of 65th Place and Stony Island Avenue.

The ambulance was on its way to a call when a man hurled a brick through a window. There was no patient in the ambulance.

The ambulance was staffed by a commander and a paramedic candidate. It’s not clear which was injured. Both were taken by another ambulance to the hospital to be evaluated. One had minor cuts.

It’s not clear what prompted the man to throw a brick at the ambulance. He’s not in custody.
