Biker down

If you were the first on the scene of an accident involving a biker, would you know what to do? Would you know who is most at risk, how to protect the area or whether you should remove the helmet of a downed rider?  Actions taken in the first few moments after an accident can be crucial in minimising injuries and can make a real difference to the lives of those involved.
