While at the Carsington Water Emergency Services Rescue Day today the team attended several incidents.
The first was a Seventy year-old volunteer on a nearby stall who was suffering chest pains. A team paramedic assessed the man, who was thought to be suffering from hypoglycemia causing an irregular heart rhythm. He was treated by the team onsite and transported to the Royal Derby Hospital by an East Midlands Ambulance Service(EMAS) land ambulance. We have since learned that the man has been discharged this evening.
The second incident was a Fourteen year-old girl who had fallen from a bike, the incident had been reported to EMAS who had dispatched an ambulance. A ranger approached the team thinking we might be the ambulance, as the ambulance had not yet arrived the team dispatched a vehicle to the scene. The girl was treated for a suspected pelvic fracture and an air ambulance was requested. The girl was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham for further treatment by the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance HeliMed 54. We have since heard that the girl suffered no serious injuries but is being kept in hospital overnight for observations.
This brings our callout count to 59 which is now our busiest year to date.
