Drowning Scenario

You are working a morning shift as a Paramedic/ECA crew on an ambulance when a call comes through for a person reportedly seen floating down a river. The location is 10 minutes drive away.

You are travelling to the scene when an update comes through from control saying that the Fire service has managed to rescue the patient from the river. They seem to be unresponsive and Fire are asking for Ambulance support. Police on scene detail that this patient was reported missing last night with family concerns over mental health and suicidal threats.

You arrive on scene where Fire have dragged the patient from the riverside to the road next to it. They are frantically using a BVM on the patient and calling you over to help.
