Female rescued from under bus

Westgate Buildings, Bath

Firefighters rescued an elderly female from underneath a bus.

When crews arrived on the scene they found the woman, thought to be in her 80s, trapped and suffering from leg injuries.

Crews used a ratchet strap to secure the wheel of the bus and then airbags were placed underneath. Working with a doctor from the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) who was on scene, the airbags were then inflated and the woman was freed. She was taken to hospital.
