Description of Incident:

Iredell County Rescue Squad and West Iredell Fire Department were dispatched to a pickup truck overturned into a creek. Upon our arrival, we found a single patient pinned inside the truck which indeed was overturned off of a bridge and into a creek. The patient was pinned in two ways – his head was pinned when the roof collapsed on the truck and both of his legs were pinned beneath he dash of the truck. The Amkus spreaders were used to remove the door and the half door from the truck to gain access to the patient. The Amkus super cutters were utilized to cut the metal from where his head was pinned to free this part of his body. The Amkus cutters were again used to make needed relief cuts and then the Amkus rams (all sizes) were used to push the dash and the floor away from both of his legs. At this point the patient was free and was removed to a helicopter for flight to a trauma center.
