Mannum CFS, SA Ambulance, Police from the Hills-Murray LSA, and local funeral directors presented a mock accident to students from Mannum High School, and surrounding areas.

The mock accident was to show students what actually happens at the scene of a serious accident - with the aim of preventing road trauma amongst young people.

Four students were made up with realistic injuries - including one with "fatal" injuries.

Emergency Crews worked together to free trapped casualties, and place them in ambulances for transport to Hospital. The "fatally" injured passenger was placed in a body bag, and carried away to the waiting funeral directors van.

Photographs from the mock accident are available on the "Photo" page of this website, which can be accessed from the menu to the left.
