This video may be comically exaggerated, but I’m sure EMT’s everywhere have stories of patients who seriously injure themselves by doing stupid things. We certainly feel a great sense of empathy for the patient’s pain & responsibility to care for the patient in the best way possible. Having said that, we sometimes can’t help feeling frustrated when the injury was easily avoidable.  Feel free to elaborate in the comments on your own exasperation when the patient could’ve avoided injury with a little common sense.

I’ve known about this cute safety video for a little while now. However, I wasn’t sure if I should post it due to it’s dash of morbidity. Then I thought: why don’t you decide? Let me know what you think in the comments.

These firefighters responding to this horrible accident knew they had little time to treat & transport the patient, & There was no time to get a jack. So they tried the brute force approach. They lifted the car off the pinned cyclist themselves. Sometimes teamwork & a sense of urgency can do the job.
