A man, aged in his 40s, has fallen three metres at a Blacktown construction site, suffering injuries to his chest and right leg.
The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly before 10:00am and landed 10 minutes later in a nearby clearing. NSW Police transported CareFlight’s medical team to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the man and administered pain relief. Working in tandem with other emergency service personnel, CareFlight’s medical team monitored the man’s condition as he was lifted from the site via a crane.
The man was transported by road to Westmead Hospital with NSW Ambulance in a stable condition under ongoing observation from CareFlight’s medical team.
