Patient sent to hospital in 28 mins by copter
    2018-07-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A PEDESTRIAN who was knocked down by a motorbike in Dapeng New Area was sent to the Shenzhen Hospital of Southern Medical University in Bao’an District in just 28 minutes by a helicopter during a planned rescue drill in Dapeng on Friday, the Shenzhen Evening News reported over the weekend.

The drill, jointly organized by public service departments in Dapeng New Area and an airline company, aimed to resolve difficulties in emergency rescue caused by traffic congestion during the holidays by providing helicopter rescue services.

On Friday morning, the drill involving ambulances and helicopters was held at Kuiyong Cultural Square in Dapang New Area. At around 12:10 p.m., Deng Shaohu, deputy chief of Dapeng traffic police, was walking back to the police station after the exercise and found a pedestrian unconscious after being knocked down by a motorbike.

Deng called an ambulance that was near the scene of the incident on behalf of the injured pedestrian. After primary diagnosis, this patient was considered to be seriously injured and a helicopter participating in the drill was called in to transport the patient to a downtown hospital at 12:22 p.m.

The helicopter arrived at the Shenzhen Hospital of Southern Medical University at 12:50 after a 28-minute flight. According to a doctor in the hospital, the patient came to hospital with stable vital signs.

On behalf of the Dapeng traffic police, an officer who took part in the drill said they never expected that this drill would turn into a real rescue. They hoped that the rescue mechanism by air will be improved gradually and help more injured people during the coming summer holiday.

Shenzhen is building helicopter pads on several large public hospitals to pave the way for helicopter rescue, earlier media reports said. (Cui Chenxin)
