57yo Rigoberto Mollina Rugamas was rescued by the Comandos de Salvamento High Angle SAR team after falling down a steep bank in Cuscatancingo. The rescue was challenging with the litter due to the length of rope needed. The steep bank was over 100 meters in length. Due to various injuries to his upper extremities and thorax, the patient was immediately packaged and transported to higher level of care.
We remember that 6 years ago CDS Doctor Carlos Hernández Reyes, passed away after doing a night shift at the CDS walk in clinic. He was struck on his motorcycle on his way back home. Carlos trained many comandos in basic suturing techniques including me between 1999 and 2002 while living at the Central Base. May his memory remain. Guardian Angel Dr. Carlos
