Audio slideshow: South African paramedics

South Africa has one of the world's highest rates of violent crimes, while last year more than 13,000 were killed on its roads, partly because of a culture of drink-driving

This means paramedics are kept extremely busy. Photographer Daniel Cuthbert spent six months documenting the work of emergency medical service ER24 in Johannesburg and Durban.

Please be aware that the slideshow contains images of injury.

Photography, audio and production byDaniel Cuthbert, with additional work by Emma Lynch at the BBC.
