Simulated Patients Become Real Ones
The line between fantasy and
reality was blurred -- then crossed -- during a disaster drill at
Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia Tuesday.
During the drill -- a twice-yearly training and preparedness
exercise -- five of 835 volunteers succumbed to scorching mid-day
heat by losing consciousness.
Two others required medical intervention from smoke inhalation,
according to New Zealand's TVNZ.
One actor had been 'rescued' earlier in the drill and was left
lying on a grassy area at the 'crash site'. A real nurse, also
taking part in the simulation, 'treated' her 'wounds'... before
realizing the woman was, in fact, truly unconscious.
A firefighter and an airport worker required medical treatment
for smoke inhalation and were taken to a local hospital.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport is located about 31 miles
south of the Malaysian capital and processes more than 23 million
Carriers such as Air India, Japan's Air Mauritius, China
Airlines and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines service the airport.
