Talking it over helps
Scottish Ambulance Service technician and student paramedic Tany Ellis says talking to colleagues after attending a fatal crash is important.
She said:“Over the years I’ve probably attended 20 fatal car accidents.
“Young people tend to get as many people in a car, put the music up and away they go.
“When we arrive on scene it’s like everything is going in slow motion, just taking one step and then the next step.
“I’m thinking‘Is this person breathing, are they trapped?’
“You’re praying that they’re going to speak back.
“Every fatality I’ve been to I can remember and I could tell you about in great detail.
“It seems to be implanted in your memory.”
