Man pierced by pole saved by CareFlight
CareFlight, an Australian helicopter rescue operator, has reported on an incident it attended in northern Sydney. An 18-year-old man impaled his leg on a pole after falling from a height of three metres. He was working at a construction site in Lane Cove.
CareFlight dispatched its rapid response helicopter to the scene, landing in the field of a nearby school. A specialist doctor and intensive care paramedic provided treatment for more than an hour and a half in order to stabilise the patient whilst Fire and Rescue NSW used specialist cutting equipment to free him from the pole. The scene was also attended by a ground ambulance, into which the man was then loaded. The CareFlight team accompanied him until he arrived at Royal North Shore Hospital, reportedly in a stable condition.
