According to eye witnesses the boy collided with one of the vehicles which caused him to come off of his motorbike and land in the road. Allegedly a second vehicle then rode over the boy and dragged him under the vehicle for approximately ten meters.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene they found the boy at the rear end of the one vehicle laying in the fetal position. The boy had sustained significant injuries to his abdomen and chest and needed to be taken to hospital urgently. The paramedics then promptly dispatched the ER24 Discovery Medicopter to the scene.
Within minutes the Medicopter was at the scene to airlift the boy to hospital. With local schools opening this week and traffic back to normal, ER24 would like to advise both scooter and other road users to take extra care when using the national roads and to be observant of each other.
