rescued cotillo sea fuerteventura minor

Minor rescued from the sea in Fuerteventura, El Cotillo
Radio Sintonia:

SUC medicalized helicopter transports a minor rescued from the sea in Fuerteventura.

A medicalized helicopter of the SUC has transferred a minor rescued from the sea in Fuerteventura.

This afternoon, at 13:58 p.m., the Emergency and Security Coordination Center (CECOES) 1-1-2 of the Government of the Canary Islands received an alert in which it was communicated that they had taken a minor from the sea who showed signs of drowning. It happened in Playa del Castillo, in El Cotillo, municipality of La Oliva.

The emergency personnel found that the minor, 15 years old, was in cardiorespiratory arrest with signs of drowning so they practiced basic and advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers that managed to reverse the stop. Upon arrival, the personnel of the SUC medicalized helicopter was in charge of stabilizing him and preparing his urgent evacuation to the Maternal and Child University Hospital of Gran Canaria, where he was admitted in serious condition.

We could see the helicopter from our apartment terrace as well as a fire rescue truck, Cross Rosa 4x4 and an ambulance were also on scene.

At the same time there was a road traffic accident, involving two cars and possibly a motor cycle, on the outbound lane from El Cotillo to El Roque.

Two ambulances and two Police cars were in attendance, with one ambulance on scene for at least two hours and Police crew diverting traffic around the crash site for considerably longer.

Hope all involved are now safe and well
