We believe this incident demonstrates just how our people have saving lives at the heart of their business;
Whilst working at one of the Notting Hill Housing estates, Alan Kelly House, on behalf of Axis Europe one of our team had cause to save one of the residents’ lives through his swift actions and the implementation of his first aid training.
One of the residents – a wheel chair user – suffered extensive bleeding whilst accessing the gates (it’s suspected that he damaged the arteries due to colliding into the wall). Our quick-thinking operative quickly identified the potential danger to the gentleman’s life and managed to apply enough pressure to the wound for the 45 minutes it took for the ambulance to arrive. Having lost 2.5 pints of blood the paramedics and the client were quick to congratulate our operative on saving the gentleman’s life. The resident is now recovering in hospital and awaiting a blood transfusion. We wish him a speedy recovery.
