We were called at 5.51pm yesterday to reports of a road traffic collision involving a bus and a cyclist on Hoe Street, Walthamstow.
Off duty Paramedic Manager Stephen Hines was the first clinician on scene, arriving in five minutes of the call coming into our control room.
Stephen said: “When I got there the patient was already out from under the bus and members of public said they had freed him by lifting the bus. It was definitely a great help to me as it meant I could start treating him straight away.”
The patient was treated for serious leg injuries, given pain relief and taken to the Royal London Hospital as a priority.
