Lives saved by LIVES
Shortly before midnight on Sunday 4th September a BMW carrying three young men collided with a large tree in the village of Bainton, Cambridgeshire.
Following the crash, two occupants were trapped and had to be cut from the wreckage by Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service.
A Doctor and Nurse team from LIVES (Lincolnshire BASICS) joined crews from the East of England and East Midlands Ambulance Services to provide medical care during the extrication and transport to hospital.
Two seriously injured patients were taken to Peterbourgh Hospital. The third occupant of the car was unhurt.
Dr Steel said ‘the co-ordinated efforts of the three medical organisations on scene provided optimal care and delivered the patients to hospital in the best possible clinical condition’.
LIVES is the Lincolnshire based BASICS scheme working in partnership with the East Midlands Ambulance Service to provide high quality pre hospital care to the people of Lincolnshire and the surrounding areas.
