Attempts to save a lorry driver’s life

Monday 5th January 2015 – 5.10pm – Chris Kowalik.

Ambulance and fire crews battled to save the life of a lorry driver in north Worcestershire today.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Bewdley Road, Stourport shortly before 10.30am.

An ambulance crew, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Strensham and Cosford attended. Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service also attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When ambulance crews arrived, the fire service had already removed the driver from his vehicle and started to try to resuscitate him. Firefighters took it in turns to continue with CPR while ambulance crews administered advanced life-support.

“Sadly, despite the collective efforts of all involved, the man was confirmed dead at the scene.”

  1. The poor guy simply went out this morning to work……… so sad and my thoughts too are with his family.
    And I know it’s their job but am also keeping in my mind thoughts of the emergency crews that must have worked so incredibly hard to save this driver, none of us must ever forget how fortunate we all are to have people like this who are prepared to stand up and say “yes, I’ll help you”
