Paramedic speaks of devastating effects of drink-driving

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 10:35

THE latest in a series of hard-hitting films has been released today (Wednesday) as part of a police campaign to cut drink-driving this Christmas.
The film is the second in a series of four, which has been produced by Hampshire and Isle of Wight police with the support of a family whose daughter died after crashing while drunk.
In this latest film paramedic Kate McDougall talks about her experience of this and other drink-drive incidents.
"Part of my job is to declare people deceased. It is awful having to do it at road accidents, especially when drink is involved, because it is such a waste of life.
"It is completely preventable and should never happen.
"People make a choice to get in a car once they've been drinking.
"It causes such devastating effects and should never happen."
Drink-drivers can be reported by text using 80999 or by calling 999.
