A man, aged in his 20s, has sustained head and arm injuries after falling several metres from the roof of a Richmond residence.
The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked shortly before 9:30am and landed 15 minutes later in a park opposite the scene of the incident. CareFlight’s clinical team made their way to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic conducted a full trauma assessment on the man, which included an ultrasound.
CareFlight’s medical team provided ongoing observation for the man as he was airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.
