AMBULANCE CREWS ASSIST INJURED WALKER AT FIRESTONE COPSE

Published at:

The Isle of Wight Ambulance Service has this afternoon (Sunday) assisted an individual who injured themselves whilst enjoying a walk at Firestone Copse near Havenstreet.

2 ambulance crews – 1 local crew and 1 from Festimed – responded to the main car park of the Forestry Commission-owned public area sometime before 16:00.

Due to the remote location of the incident between Havenstreet and Wootton, as well as the nature of the injuries sustained, IOWAS’ 4×4 Land Rover Discovery was called upon to transport the patient back to the car park.

The casualty was placed onto a stretcher before being conveyed to St Mary’s Hospital for treatment to what is suspected to be a leg injury.

And a spare ambulance in case the first one broke down.

Least the Helicopter and a couple of Fire Engines were not there.

Or was the wide angle lens not used?

If you had any experience of the paramedics work, you would be taking into consideration the possible weight of the casualty, and the terrain over which the casualty needs to be stretchered.
No good arriving at the scene of the accident and having to wait for extra help to arrive..

My word, plenty of help on hand it seems. Seems the Government rapid funding of the NHS is already paying dividends to the accident prone public.
Well done guys and Boris for providing more funds for the NHS to treat everything from CV to a sprained ankle.

Funny how many people seem to have lost the ability to even go for a walk without requiring full emergency services assistance in the last few days ….

Jude jim, pick up your dogs business next time, and don’t just launch it into the nearest hedgerow or verge either. Take it back to the social housing estate to put with the soiled nappies and beer cans.
