Today at 11:15 a.m. a group of domestic tourists, having an adventurous off-road tour with ATVs, alerted the Mountain Rescue Service operational center for an ATV accident, in which two passengers veered off the road and overturned in a ravine ten meters deep. A team of the MRS went immediately to the field, and the operational center alerted the Internal Affairs Department in Ohrid and the Emergency Medical Service. At 11:30 a.m. the team arrived at the scene of accident. To the two injured persons (male and female), both with polytraumas, first aid according to the protocol for this type of intervention was provided. Both were immobilized and transported by an off-road mountain rescue vehicle to the ambulance vehicle that was waiting at the nearest access point. At 12:10 p.m. the two injured persons were handed over to the EMS and transferred to further hospital treatment.
We like to use this opportunity to appeal to the tourist workers and the users of tourist services in adventure tourism, to respect and strictly adhere to the safety rules, and in case of an accident, especially of this kind with polytraumas with possibly serious consequences, to immediately alert us and wait for our teams.
