Male paramedics attending to a Muslim female

Q: If a lady is in niqaab and happens to be in an accident and there is only male paramedics on the scene, is it allowed for them to check her out and see her face?

A: If there is nobody else to attend to her then they should attend to her applying maximum hijaab precautions.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
