161.160 is the freq for that section of railroad. A nice diagram showing the mile posts and sidings is here:I just did not know what Railroad Freq. to monitor. The only one that I have in my scanner is 161.145 and its usually locked out. Also, a Longmont Police Officer was asking if he needed to coordinate with a "law enforcement official" from the railroad. Who might that be? Thanks
That is so sad.If your stomach can handle it, here is the 911 call audio:
The victim is very lucky a former EMT and LUH nurse were there nearby waiting for the train to cross the road.
Then you had better know were the pressure points are for that limb in the pelvic area are.Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry8530/22.214.171.1243 Profile/MIDP-2.1 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)
Back to why to not apply a tourniquet: I haven't read the article yet, but the legs might be severed high enough, that there isn't room for one.
You need at apply the TQ at least 2 inches above the wound, with an amputation I would try to go even higher. From the 911 call it sounds like the Left leg could have had a TQ placed (amputated at the knee), but the Right leg may have been to high of an amputation to effectively place a TQ.Then you had better know were the pressure points are for that limb in the pelvic area are.
