The Age: Paramedics treat 14 cyclists in 24 hours

March 4, 2010

Ambulance officers have treated 14 cyclists over the past 24 hours after separate bike accidents across Melbourne.

A six-year-old boy and an 87-year-old man are among the latest bike riders treated by paramedics.

The young boy suffered bruising and swelling to his forehead and was taken to Frankston Hospital.

The elderly man called paramedics after coming off his bike and injuring his leg yesterday.

The most seriously injured of all the patients is a 48-year-old man who came off his bike onto tram tracks at Prahran this morning and struck his head on the road.
