Emergency First Response would like to congratulate Fayyaz Ibrahim (PADI IDCS and EFR Instructor # 948142) for providing much needed assistance when called upon.
Fayyaz was on the way to afternoon prayers when he saw that a van had hit a tree on the next block. Bystanders had called the police but were unsure of what first aid steps to take to care for the driver, who was unconscious. Fayyaz saw that the driver, who was still in his seat, seemed to be having a small fit, and suspected that he was in shock. Fayyaz checked that the driver had a pulse and was breathing, then laid him down and continued to monitor his ABCs until the ambulance arrived.
Well done Fayyaz!
