Thursday afternoon February 23rd 2012. On a small road on the outskirts of the German city of Düsseldorf an elderly man was driving his white Mercedes Benz car when he lost control of the vehicle. The car left the road hitting a tree, the vehicle then rolled at fairly high speed coming to rest in a field some 40 meters from the spot where the vehicle initially left the road. The driver was trapped inside the demolished vehicle and had to be cut free by the Fire Brigade. The man received immediate emergency first aid at the scene whilst still trapped in the vehicle. After about 3o minutes the man was free from the wreck and was carried by several Firemen to an Ambulance waiting on the road.
