Well, let me go out on a limb here and assume that their "training" would be able to help them identify a broken bone without the bone actually sticking out of the limb! One of my dogs broke a bone and I was able to figure it out, and other than very limited communication with regard to walks, food, and dog biscuits, he can't talk!

I'm not saying that EMS should be able to completely diagnose all injuries at the scene, but to not take the guy to the hospital for X-rays, and even worse let him ride off on his motorcycle, is inexcusable in my opinion.

The concussion, they should have been able to figure that one out.
