Ladder Platform Rescue - Lindfield

Published: 27 Apr 2021 12:35pm

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) was called to a pilates studio on the Pacific Highway, Lindfield, where a female had fallen off a pilates reformer and injured her ribs.

FRNSW received the call at 12.35pm, and due to the narrowness of the stairwell and the painful nature of the injury, fire crews removed the patient through a first floor window via a ladder platform truck.

FRNSW worked with NSW Police and NSW Ambulance to remove the patient safely down to a waiting ambulance where she was transported to hospital.
