CareFlight’s critical care team and NSW Ambulance paramedics worked together to treat the patient. A member of the public who was an off-duty nurse had provided first aid to the patient prior to CareFlight’s arrival, including applying a tourniquet. The CareFlight specialist doctor would like to thank this member of the public for this first aid.

The man was then accompanied by the CareFlight specialist doctor in a road ambulance to Westmead hospital in a stable condition.
