Late Saturday afternoon, a teenage motorcyclist was injured when his motorcycle and a car collided on the Old Pacific Highway, Brooklyn.
The boy sustained head and limb injuries.
The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly after 3:30pm and landed 13 minutes later at the Brooklyn helipad, next to the Old Pacific Highway close to the incident scene. NSW Police escorted the medical team to the incident scene where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the teenager and conducted an ultrasound to assess his injuries. CareFlight’s medical team intubated the patient and placed him in an induced coma to stabilise him.
The boy was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious but stable condition under ongoing observation from CareFlight’s medical team.
