Ice-cream van to the rescue after transporting patient from Portmarnock beach

What a hero.

AN ICE-CREAM VAN came to the rescue at Portmarnock beach in Dublin yesterday.

The van was used to transport a patient who got a fish-hook caught in their foot.

A spokesperson for Dublin Fire Brigade told that an ambulance or fire truck couldn’t get to the patient as the vehicles were too heavy to go on the sand at the area of the beach where the man was located.

The ice-cream van was lighter and a paramedic got in the back of the truck and the patient was then transported to the ambulance on a path.

The patient was then brought to hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
