Firefighters cut ring of patientin accident and emergency

First published in News

FIREFIGHTERS spent more than an hour at Southampton's A&E department last night helping to cut a ring of a patient's finger.

A crew from Redbridge were deployed to Southampton General Hospital after a plea from medics to help with a patient who needed a titanium ring removing from their finger.

A spokesman from Redbridge station said it was one of a number of similar calls they had responded to recently as they have specialist ring cutting equipment.

It's really not worth the effort of calling attention to DE's mistakes. If only their errors were solely typographical or orthographic.

An hour eh? In my day it only took a few seconds. But then we didn't have to complete risk assessments, health and safety surveys and the like. We just did the job!
It's a good job the story actually clarifies that the patients ring was on a finger.
