Manchester attack Hospital staff on treating the victims. They didn’t know who the people were that needed treatment
Medical staff at Stepping Hill Hospital speak about working to treat the victims of Manchester’s bomb attack on Monday.
22 people died and more than 60 people were injured when a suicide bomber set-off his device in the foyer of the Manchester Arena. Emergency services were on the scene within minutes of receiving the call of the blast.
Medical staff heard of the incident via local media and also responded immediately.
Due to the horrific attack, it was a night that turned out to a nightmare. But nurses and doctors put aside their concerns and concentrated on treating those who were hurt.
Many of the injured were not known and could not be identified immediately. It took several hours to find names and addresses so that families could be advised.
Nurses did not want to think of the disaster only in taking care of the injured. Some cried when they were at home.
Eight hospitals in the Greater Manchester area were dealing with injuries from the bomb attack.
The Queen has visited the children’s hospital in Manchester to express her sympathies and concern.
