In a question of minutes a life can be saved or lost during motor vehicle accidents and we have been able to acquire some extrication equipment with sponsorship from People’s Norwegian Aid.
Said equipment will be used by our urban rescue squad to help extricate patients safely and efficiently. We thank Jeff Pugh, of The PXTeam for the equipment, Mark Hoffman for mediating the purchase and Rony Calderon with a group of Friends in Los Angeles that were able to coordinate shipping of the gear from Washington State to San Salvador.
Friday night gave us quite a few EMS runs to attend to Motor Vehicle Accidents spread out across San Salvador.
Along the 10ª. Avenida Norte y la 29ª. Calle Oriente, a young 22yo Isaí Salomón Batres knocked off his bike and luckily with a helmet on only suffered minor injuries and was attended on scene by our EMTs.
Minutos después sobre la 10ª. Avenida Norte y la 11ª. Calle Oriente una ambulancia del Hospital Nacional de San Francisco Gotera, Morazán, colisionó contra un vehículo de alquiler, dejando al menos cinco personas lesionadas entre ellos ambos conductores.
Only minutes after, an ambulance from the National hospital in San Francisco Gotera Morazan crashed into another car causing at least 5 injured including a 4 year old boy.
Shortly after that along the Troncal del Norte highway near KM marker 10, a male was DOA due to being ran over.
