Woman Suffers Serious Head & Leg Injuries | Season 1 Ep. 9 | FIRST RESPONDERS LIVE


So that looks like
a pretty gnarly– laceration. It might be just a laceration. But the patient’s in
a great deal of pain. Feels better with her leg bent. So we’re going to try and
help her out with this on the way to the hospital. She’s got three
nasty [inaudible].. It’s an obvious deformity. We’ll get a pillow
with something, and– Actually– She’s actually
good right there. I wasn’t ready to see your
leg look like that, baby. Girl, I wasn’t ready
for that, either. I bet you weren’t, either. Lord have mercy. Yeah, I wasn’t ready for
that, either, whenever– Hopefully all you need is– Some stitches. Some staples
and some stitches, or something like that, but– If you feel a little
nauseous, I can give you something for that, too, OK? OK. So we gave this young
lady some pain medicine, and she seems to be comfortable. Her vitals are stable. Just really, she needs an x-ray
to see if that leg is broken or not. It’s hard to tell out
here in the field, especially in a joint like that. You know– her tib fib or,
you know, part of her femur. It doesn’t seem to be that
it would be the femur, but she said she couldn’t
bear weight on it, that it was extremely painful. So that’s one of our concerns. But we’ll get her
to the hospital and get her checked out.
