CROSS PLAINS TENNESSE: (Smokey Barn Information) – An icy bridge places an area man in a creek Wednesday morning triggering a group effort rescue.
The crash occurred on the bridge on Roy Cole Rd at Owens Chapel, MAP, simply earlier than 8 am. A specialised “Stoked” rescue basket and ropes had been used to drag the person up on the snow-covered hill to a ready ambulance. Chief Tommy Jackson with Cross Plains Hearth Division was the primary to reach together with RobCo Sheriff’s Dept adopted by the Tennessee Freeway Patrol.
In line with Robertson County EMS Director Brent Dyer, Robertson County EMS and EMA responded with further manpower. Even native associates and neighbors of the person participated within the rescue. After a couple of minutes within the care of Robertson County EMS, the driving force (with a little bit warmth) rapidly improved. He was transported to TriStar NorthCrest Medical Heart in Springfield in secure situation.
In line with officers on the scene, icy highway circumstances coupled with the potential of a medical emergency could have contributed to the crash.
