cond canaria gran critical fuerteventura tourist evacuated hotel

A tourist evacuated from a hotel in Fuerteventura to Gran Canaria is in critical cond
The victim was transferred by helicopter from Costa Calma to the Insular Hospital.

Emergency teams recovered a tourist who was in cardiorespiratory arrest in the swimming pool of a hotel complex in the town of Costa Calma, in Fuerteventura, in the early afternoon of this Wednesday.

As reported by the Emergency and Security Coordination Centre (Cecoes) 1-1-2 in a statement, the 59-year-old woman was transferred in critical condition to the Insular University Hospital of Gran Canaria by a medicalised helicopter from the Canary Islands Emergency Service (SUC).

The alert call from the hotel was received at around 1:00 p.m., and it was reported that a woman was in cardiorespiratory arrest in the vicinity of the swimming pool of the tourist establishment and that medical assistance was needed.

As soon as the SUC officers arrived, a doctor present in the operating room gave instructions via teleassistance to the staff of the tourist facility to begin resuscitation maneuvers and apply a semi-automatic defibrillator with which several shocks were made.

Once the medical staff arrived at the scene, they found that the woman remained in cardiorespiratory arrest, so they performed basic and advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers until they managed to recover her pulse.

Once she was stabilised, she was transferred by helicopter to the hospital in the capital of Gran Canaria, where she was admitted in critical condition.

Agents of the Local Police of Pájara and members of the Fire Department of the municipality also participated in the event, and ensured the maneuvers of grounding and taking off of the aircraft on the soccer field of the town of Costa Calma.
