On Thursday night EMER-G-MED’s RV4, M04 and A09 were dispatched to reports of a pedestrian vehicle collision on the corner of Albertina Sisulu and Queen Street in Bertrams – east of Johannesburg.
On arrival paramedics found that a 11 year old boy had been knocked over by a car, and was in a very critical condition.
Unfortunately the child’s condition deteriorated and his heart stopped. Paramedics initiated a full Advanced Life Support resuscitation and performed CPR.
Unfortunately their attempts were unsuccessful and declared the patient dead on the scene.
The traffic police’s specialist Accident Investigation Unit were on the scene to investigate accordingly.
