Two Rescues In 48 Hours
Date: 12.02.2012

Around 3AM on Friday November 30th, Rescue 21 was dispatched to the eastbound Schuylkill Expressway at mile marker 334.0 for a three vehicle accident with people trapped in two vehicles. Members arrived and assisted Rescue 22 and Squad 39 with extrication and patient packaging of two persons. Then at 02:44 on Sunday December 2nd, Rescue 21 went to Bryn Mawr to assist at a vehicle accident with one subject trapped. Rescue 21 arrived to find one vehicle entangled in live electrical wires, and another vehicle that crashed into a tree with the operator heavily entrapped (see picture). Members went to work along side Squad 23 and Rescue 22 in cutting the passenger side posts, and our Transformer "Jaws of Life" were used to help free the drivers' trapped lower extremities. The company was in service for about an hour. We wish all of the injured persons involved a speedy recovery.
