This morning, at 9:25 a.m. a colleague from MRS who lives in Kaneo, asked for assistance, for immobilization and transport of a neighbor who, while doing her daily work at home, fell and suffered a severe fracture of the lower leg. The MRS team arrived at the scene in 13 min. It carried out complete immobilization of the injured limb with the help of a modern vacuum aid, as well as additional immobilization of the entire body of the injured woman, in order to safely transport her along the steep and narrow streets in the settlement. After immobilization, the injured woman was carried to the church of St. Sofia, and transported to the Special Hospital for Orthopedics and Traumatology St. Erasmus, for further medical treatment with an MRS vehicle.
For the second time this year, the MRS assists the citizens and health services in safely evacuating injured residents from Kaneo, because the conventional methods of the other services are simply inapplicable.
These cases, fortunately with non-life-threatening injuries, once again raise the alarm about the necessity of acquiring specialized vessels, which will significantly increase the efficiency of rescue teams, in hard-to-reach lakeside settlements and tourist sites.
We wish the lady a speedy recovery, and we advise the residents of Kaneo settlement and all the citizens of the region to contact us promptly on our SOS line 13-112, whenever they need our help.
