ON travelling on the bus one morning a passenger gashed her leg getting on the bus. Her condition caused her to bleed more heavily and an ambulance was called.
To my surprise buses of today do not carry a basic first aid pack and that we do not realise this until there is need for one. The driver and helper did their best with what they had – sterile pads to staunch the bleeding would have been a godsend until the ambulance arrived.
