Terrible incident on Avenida Nuestra Señora del Carmen in Corralejo



"In what was supposed to be a happy family getaway in Fuerteventura, life took an unexpected turn for Harriet when a car drove through an outdoor seating area and seriously injured several people. Harriet watched as the car swerved towards her five-year-old daughter and pushed her off the road. This resulted in her being in direct contact with the vehicle at the time of impact and left her with life-changing injuries," Charlotte explains in her application.



"Now in Gran Canaria, after being airlifted to hospital and having endured three urgent surgeries, Harriet faces a challenging journey ahead. He lost his spleen, suffered severe liver damage and a life-changing spinal injury. The crucial next step is to bring her back to the UK, where she will have to be transferred to a specialist spine rehabilitation unit in a bid to restore her quality of life."

The story of the Corralejo accident and the fate of Harriet Moxon moves British society.

The 34-year-old mother of 5 children left the ICU having her spleen removed, with liver and spinal problems



NEWSROOMFUERTEVENTURA


The newspaper The Mirror, one of the reference headers of England published last Tuesday an extensive report on the situation of Harriet Moxon, "a mother heroically saved the life of her daughter, but suffered serious injuries in doing so, when a car crashed into the cafeteria in which they were. "



In the explanation of the fatal event that impacted the entire majorera society, The Mirror explains that "Harriet Moxon, 34, and her family went to the establishment in Fuerteventura during their holidays. As Harriet's husband and son drove away to go to the bathroom, a car veered off the road and crashed into the cafeteria. Harriett rushed to push her daughter's Eve out of the way, but she herself took most of the hit on Thursday, August 31.



Charlotte Rigeon, Harriett's twin sister, said: "Harriet had seen the car coming and managed to push Eve, her five-year-old daughter, out of the car's path and she took the brunt of the impact herself.



Harriet was transferred by helicopter to the main hospital in Fuerteventura. There, he underwent an urgent splenectomy to remove the bleeding spleen, a procedure that saved his life. His medical journey didn't end there; Later she was transferred to a hospital in Gran Canaria for a new spinal surgery and subsequent operations on the liver.



Charlotte, a paramedic by profession, revealed the harrowing details of Harriet's ordeal. She spent five grueling days intubated and on life support in the intensive care unit before showing signs of recovery. Once the breathing tube was removed, Harriet was taken out of the ICU, marking a small victory in her battle for survival.



But Harriet, from Harrow, northwest London, is now facing a life-changing spinal injury and possible complications to her liver due to a persistent laceration that she refuses to heal. "It's just horrendous. It's a living nightmare, it's the only way I can describe it," Charlotte told My London.



Wants to go home



As a paramedic and physician associate, Charlotte immediately understood the gravity of the situation. "When I heard 'catastrophic injuries,' I knew the impact of them. And I knew I was going to fly to potentially recover my sister's body. I've been in these scenes and people don't come out alive." She confessed.



The ordeal continues as Harriet struggles in a foreign hospital where not much English is spoken. "It's still a nightmare because he's obviously in a foreign country, in a hospital that doesn't speak English very well," Charlotte added.



"Absolutely amazing" care of the Canarian health



Harriet's struggle is compounded by her inability to move around her bed and the discomfort of the sweltering heat, as the hospital lacks air conditioning. Despite the "absolutely amazing" quality of care she received, Harriet's family is now raising funds to cover the costs of bringing her home.
