TWO people were left with suspected broken bones after falling from their bikes.

The incident happened just outside Troon Fire Station last Wednesday March 30 evening where crews had to use equipment to free a young boy from a bike.

At around 5.49pm a man and a four-year-old boy were on bikes and fell off outside the fire station.

It is suspected that the man broke his arm in the accident and the boy is thought to have broke his ankle and suffered cuts to his elbow.

Station Manager Derek Davidson said “As a result of the unfortunate event a young boy had his foot trapped between the wheel and the frame of the bicycle.

"As such, although very unusual, the fire crew used hydraulic cutting equipment normally utilised for vehicles involved in serious road traffic collisions to free the youngster and pass him into the care of the Scottish Ambulance Service.”

He added “The entire operation took in the region of 30 minutes to extricate the trapped limb from the bicycle.”
