Tour bus vs. about eight cars. Three trapped, two in an upsidedown Dodge utility, and a third in an Explorer. There was also a motorcycle under the bus...but it was being towed by the Dodge. Two fatalities...

i really cant say much about them as ive only used them once or twice but from what i see, they rock man, nothing worse than having a flipped car snap in half or fall on your crew.

My dept has Nightmare Rescue Struts. We've used them in training and they worked well. As with any strut, you've got to use a chain or ratchet strap or something to tie down the bottom so it doesn't kick out. I attempted to use them once on a real crash but we didn't have enough room to deploy them.

They are made by a guy local to me, but I have no connections with him.

yeah thats the only thing that sucks is that you have to have room to use them. the Nightmare Rescue Struts are almost the same as the res q jak ones. what kind of hydraulic tools does you dept use?

Yes they both lived, this call was back in October. I been in Fire/EMS for 11 years and this was probably the most challenging call I have ever done. I have seen and done some pretty crazy things and this call is probably tops. A book can be written about this call.

Jon: what did you have to do regarding airway management? Any further info is appreciated (non-HIPAA, of course); it would be good to learn from this one.

I too would be interested in this one. I would be more interested in extracation. I looks like the airways were fairly stable with a simple NRB. But how did you get them out of there?

Thier airways were quite stable, thier C-spines stabilized with the windshield. They were both awake & alert the whole time and we ended up cutting away the the windshield to put no necks on them. It was a two part extrication, the truck had to be lifted off of them, then they had to be cut out of the car which was done simultaneously. From arrival on scene to removal was 63 minutes.

This is interesting, sorry to bother you with more questions! How did you lift the truck off them? That is NOT a small truck! Do you have any more pictures, especially of the extrication? Hard to believe the guys were awake and alert. Did they have concussions? At some extrications, we have had the dazed victims fight us. Even though we know they don't know what is going on due to situation, it still is maddening to have the person you are trying to save fighting you!

We used airbags on each side fo the truck and underneath it. If that failed we had a heavy duty tow truck on scene, and if that failed we a giant crane on its way which was about ten minutes out when we got the second guy out. Also we had a Trauma Doc and a PA from Yale on scene if any amputations had to be done in the field.

I was wondering if you used airbags. We have airbags on our rescue, but no one in our department can remember ever using them at an incident. At drills we break them out every now and then to make sure they still work.
