As stated by SAMU 61, due to the large number of metres involved in the fall, the emergency services activated the ‘Polytrauma Code’, bringing it to the attention of the hospital’s paediatric team. Polytrauma or multiple trauma, is a medical term describing the condition of a person who has been subjected to multiple traumatic injuries.
