Thursday evening IPSS Medical Rescue were dispatched to a single vehicle accident on the N2. According to the caller, they had their 7 month old baby in the vehicle and could not locate him following the accident.

Multiple units were dispatched to the scene. Upon arrival, the mother of the child approached our medics holding her child in her arms. She advised us that the child was found a distance away from the vehicle unresponsive and she had started mouth to mouth ventilation when the baby responded with a cry.

The child was moved into the IPSS Medical Rescue Intensive Care Ambulance, where an advanced life support intervention was initiated by our Paramedic. The child was intubated and place on a ventilator prior to being transported to hospital for further care.

3 additional people were injured and taken to hospital.

UPDATE – The 8 month old child has succumbed to the injuries. The vehicle was being driven by the mothers brother and not the father as previously thought, the other passenger, a young female was also a family member.
