Despite the efforts of passers-by and ambulance medics, a man sadly died in a road traffic collision in Birmingham last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the Tyburn Road near to the Lichfield Road/Slade Road roundabout shortly after 10.30pm yesterday evening (Thursday). A paramedic area support officer, two ambulances and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a motorcyclist who had come off his bike. An off-duty doctor and other bystanders were administering excellent CPR on the man who was in cardiac arrest.
“Ambulance staff and the MERIT doctor continued resuscitation at the scene but sadly, despite best efforts, nothing could be done the save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.”
