The Australian Paramedical College, Paramedic trainers rush to help after driver flips their car outside the Australian Paramedical College’s Gold Coast headquarters.
A driver had a lucky escape after flipping her car directly outside the training ground for paramedics on the Gold Coast this morning (Australian Paramedical College).
The small red hatchback was “completely airborne” after spinning out of control on West Burleigh Road at Burleigh Heads just before 11 am.
– Australian Paramedical College manager Kristian Hughes told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
The car flipped at Burleigh Heads just before 11 am.
In a stroke of good luck, the first person on the scene was a paramedic with more than 20 years experience.
Head trainer Luke Trevathen had been working at the Australian Paramedical College when he heard the accident and leapt into action.
Staff from the Australian Paramedical College leapt into action after the car flipped outside their Gold Coast headquarters.
“She was lucky, at the end of the day she had a paramedic right on site — seconds are critical, if it were a life and death situation Luke would have been the one to make a clear difference,” he said.
Mr Trevathen stayed with the woman until emergency services crews arrived about ten minutes later.
She has since been taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
