Onlookers passing, first became aware of the incident; going to the aid of the pedestrian during the busy morning rush hour; and summoning the emergency services.  Two ambulances, paramedics, an emergency services motor vehicle and Thurles Gardaí were quickly at the scene, to treat and carry out Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) on the victim.

The Irish Coast Guard Rescue helicopter was summoned; landing in Dr. Morris Park, close to Semple Stadium. The victim was transported by ambulance the short distance to Dr. Morris Park and quickly flown to hospital.

We wish the victim a speedy recovery.
