A young boy has sustained a facial injury after he fell from his mountain bike in the bush near McMasters Beach on the Central Coast.
His father, who was with the boy at the time of the accident, provided initial treatment until emergency services arrived.
Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance at 2pm and landed shortly after at Frost Reserve in Kincumber where they were met by the road ambulance that transported the boy to the helicopter from the scene of the accident.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the boy, which included an ultrasound and provided placement of a neck collar and administered pain relief.
The clinical team continued providing care as the boy was airlifted to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a stable condition.
