Just as we were preparing for a student field trip, an emergency call came in that a motorbike w/sidecar had gone off the side of the hill, and the driver’s foot was caught between the wheel, spring, and exhaust pipe of the motorbike. We took off, students and all, and got a sort of pre-field-trip trip. After dissembling the rear-wheel mechanism of the motorbike, we were able to take the man to the local clinic, where he received treatment for minor cuts on the feet and legs. Then it was field-trip time…

It is always very important for rescue workers in Thailand to document and take pictures of everything, especially of the belongings of the patient to have evidence in the case that local police or bystanders take advantage of the patient.
