Incident 99/2003

The second incident of the day came through on the radios from GMAS, just as the team were packing up the equipment from the Pike incident. We were called to assist GMAS in Ince-in-Makerfield, where an 2 young off-road motorcyclists had collided head on. As our ambulances arrived on scene, the first casualty, with serious lower leg injuries, was just being taken to hospital. Again, however, we used our casualty shelters to protect the second casualty – a 14 year old boy – from the elements, whilst the second GMAS ambulance was brought to the scene (at a fairly isolated location on a muddy track.)
