On Thursday 2nd April 2020, three weeks into the first Covid-19 lockdown, Henry, who was 14, spent time working on his family’s farm in Herefordshire. A freak accident left him in vital need of advanced pre-hospital emergency care.
Henry was taking a tractor out to get the sheep during lambing season. After climbing down from the tractor to close a gate behind him, Henry knocked the gearstick. This resulted in him being run over by the tractor, a box which controls the hydraulic functions scraped against Henry’s back.
The tractor continued to roam the field and Henry was left lying injured for a while until he was found, and emergency help was called.
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s RAF Cosford aircraft was despatched. Upon arrival, the critical care crew on-board started treating Henry for his life-threatening injuries which included a fractured pelvis and dislocated hip. Henry had also torn blood vessels in his hip as he had attempted to free himself resulting in catastrophic internal bleeding.
