CDS was recently dispatched to assist 13yo William García Chávez who had become trapped when he skewered his hand upon a window security bar. Witnesses state that William was trying to get a toy ball off the roof when he slipped causing his right hand to come in contact with the barbed spear. Comandos cut through the security bars to remove them from the side of the house. He was then secured and transported to the nearest hospital with the bars so that ER surgeons could study the best approach to extract them.
