The situation was further compounded by the steep angle of the truck and very difficult access to the floor area of the truck.
ASV paramedics and a medical team attended and provided high levels of care for the patient.
Heavy haulage was required to stabilize the truck before any definitive rescue activities could commence.
The rescue involved an initial internal/rear access attempt to release the driver's left foot, this was unsuccessful.
The roof was subsequently removed so the medical team could release the left leg.
A second point of entry was made to release the right leg; this was also very difficult due to the damage to the front of the truck and the steep angle of the embankment.
When both legs were released the very difficult extraction of the patient commenced.
Again this was compounded by limited access to lift and move the patient and the steep, slippery embankment.
A joint and extremely strenuous effort by ASV, CFA & SES crews enable the patient to be moved to a back board and then into a stokes basket and then moved hand to hand down the embankment and to the waiting ambulance.
The patient was transferred to hospital by ASV helicopter.
