A West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedic treated a woman who had fallen near to a railway track for a fractured ankle. The paramedic worked with railway employees who kindly put plans into place for the next passing London Midland train to stop in the woods to make a special pick-up.

An ambulance crew were on board the train to greet the woman, who was immobilised on a scoop stretcher. The woman and ambulance crew travelled to Earlswood Station to an awaiting ambulance where she was conveyed on to her next stop; Alexandra Hospital.
