Report that some Fire Service personnel were ran over by a car whilst helping to rescue accidents victims on Saturday is not accurate, the Service has said.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Fire Service, though they responded to a distress call to attend to a case of multiple accidents on the George Walker Bush Highway on Saturday, none of the personnel of the Service as involved.
“Although we had a distress call reporting accident on the Walker Bush highway involving six vehicles and the Fire Personnel were there to extricate the casualties of which 35 casualties were rushed to hospitals including 37 Hospital.
“And most of them were treated and discharged, at the time the Fire Personnel were leaving the 37 Hospital none of the casualties were confirmed dead and none of the firemen were involved in the accident,” Prince Billy Anaglate wrote on his facebook wall.
He condemned the initial reports, which he said have “created panic reactions among the general public and the Fire Personnel as well”.
