An "unclear on the concept," bonehead award goes to two Red Cross workers in Yorkshire Dales, UK, who told an injured and bleeding runner that they were not allowed to provide Band-Aids (plasters) and antiseptic because of the allergic reaction potential. Obviously better to risk infection.
"I couldn't believe it. I was bleeding quite heavily at the time," said Mr. Dickinson, the injured runner. "One of them said he could give me a plaster if he took his uniform off, but the other said he better not."
A refreshment stand employee tended to his injuries instead.
