A 16-year-old boy driving a quadbike on an Oakville private property has hit a tree and sustained injuries to his head and leg.
CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly after 3.30pm and landed 20 minutes later by the property. CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic made their way to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.
The aeromedical team performed a clinical assessment and conducted an ultrasound on the boy before he was transported to hospital.
CareFlight’s clinical team continued providing care as the patient was taken by road in a stable condition with NSW Ambulance to Westmead Hospital.
