Bicycle Impalement

On Friday evening, rescue was requested to assist EMS with a juvenile who had accidentally been impaled by the brake handle of her bicycle during a fall. After stabilizing the patient and bike to minimize movement, firefighters carefully disassembled sections of the bike before delicately cutting the section of handle still impaled. After the bulk of the bike was removed, the child was turned over to EMS for transport to the hospital, where the final impaled piece would be removed by surgeons.
