Indeed, there's not really much of a funny side here. From the perspective of a former 999 call handler for the ambulance service, all I can think of is:

  • Thrown from bicycle onto hard surface = likely head trauma and spinal injuries.

  • Landed on live rail = severe electrical burns.

  • Definite scene safety concerns.

  • Easy to find location, so ambulance should get there pretty fast


In conclusion, complacency can be very bad for your health.

That's something we very rarely get a sense of in these stories. All we ever hear of is the front-end - the accident, the injuries, the fatalities. I can't ever remember the media breaking down an incident like that.
