A toddler has been transported to hospital in a serious condition after paramedics responded to reports of a young child being hit by a car in the inner west of Sydney.
According to a statement provided to Yahoo News Australia, multiple crews and a specialist medical team were dispatched to the scene on Friday afternoon.
Nine News reports the child was 21-months-old from Strathfield and emergency services received the call at 3.45pm.
The child was treated for a serious head injury and the child was then transported to Westmead Children’s Hospital.
“Incidents like these are a parent’s and paramedic’s worst nightmare,” Joe Ibrahim, NSW Ambulance Duty Operations Manager said in the statement.
“As you can imagine arriving at a job like this is fairly horrendous, it was very upsetting for the first responders on scene.
“Going to a job where a child is involved is extremely difficult for paramedics, the crews on scene work together to get the best possible outcome for our patients.”
