PICTURES FROM CALLS

2002

This page features photos taken on calls with MCR in 2002.  We rarely have personnel available to take pictures on calls, which is why there is such a small collection here.  Pictures are provided for educational purposes only.  Although there were injuries and deaths associated with some of the incidents depicted here, extreme discretion is used in deciding which photos to place on this site.  These pictures are only a small example of the severity and number of calls that MCR responds to on a daily basis.

SEPTEMBER 2002.  Medic 1 and Medic 3 responded to an MVA on Hwy. 38 North of Bennettsville involving two dump trucks.  One of the trucks apparently lost a tire causing it to cross the center line and strike another dump truck in a swiping motion.  One of the trucks overturned, but there were no major injuries.

 


 

AUGUST 2002.  Medic 1 and Medic 2 personnel on the scene of a rollover MVA of a vehicle that left the highway overturning in a wooded area.  The driver, who was basically unhurt, was trapped in the vehicle.  MCRS personnel, with help from the City of Bennettsville Fire Department, used the MCRS' Hurst airbags to raise the car and free the patient.

 


 

JULY 2002.  These pictures are from an accident involving a Marlboro County Sheriff's Deputy that was responding to a call for help.  The vehicle left the highway striking two trees before coming to rest in the roadway.  Miraculously, the Deputy survived with relatively minor injuries.  Medic 1 responded.
