The CareFlight helicopter has attended a construction site in Manly today where a man aged in his 60s fell approximately 5 metres from scaffolding.
The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance just before 11.00am and landed at Ivanhoe Park not long after. Also in attendance were NSW Police. NSW Ambulance paramedics worked alongside CareFlight’s medical team to treat the patient, with CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performing a clinical assessment, including ultrasound and pain relief.
The man was then transported to Royal North Shore Hospital by NSW Ambulance in a stable condition.
