The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) attended the scene after receiving a 999 call at 9.45am following reports of the incident in the Gortahurk Road area of Derrylin.
A NIAS spokesman told this paper, “NIAS despatched one emergency crew and one rapid response paramedic to the scene. The charity Air Ambulance, with HEMS crew on board, were also tasked to the incident.”
