Air Corps 112 – a combined team of Irish Air Corps and National Ambulance Service crews – were called to the scene of two farm accidents this weekend.
Taking to social media yesterday, Sunday, November 17, the air corps said:
“For the second time this weekend, the crew of Air Corps 112 were tasked to an agricultural accident, this time as a result of livestock.
The service thanked members of the public for assistance given at the scene as well as staff at Galway Ambulance Station and Saolta University Hospital Galway.
A family member of one of the farm accident victims got in touch to express his gratitude to the ambulance crew for their “heroic efforts yesterday”, thanking them for their “outstanding work” as well as the efforts of family and neighbours.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, November 16, Air Corps 112 noted that it responded to three incidents including an agricultural accident that day.
