Paramedics from Lethbridge Fire & EMS in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, begin their assessment of a pedestrian who fell from a curb and became injured. The crew was confronted with a patient who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and who was not able to adequately communicate with them. The crew performed a complete primary and secondary assessment. Because the patient was unable to communicate with them, they were unable to safely rule out a spinal injury. They carefully immobilized and packaged the patient. He was transported to a local hospital in stable condition./Photo Kevin Link
