Female Trapped Under Vehicle

On October 21st, at 1222 hours Quint 25, Rescue 2, and BC 2 were dispatched to the Martin’s Grocery store at 3000 Stony Point Road for the female trapped under a vehicle. Q-25 arrived on scene and confirmed that an elderly female was trapped under a 4 door SUV. Units used cribbing to stabilize the car as airbags were used to lift the car off the elderly female. Within 25 minutes of the call the female was removed and placed in the back of a waiting Richmond Ambulance Authority unit. The female was alert and oriented during the entire operation. The female was transported to a level one trauma center. Units cleared around 1330 hours.
