CDS rescue team were immediately dispatched to the North Tikal neighborhood where two youth were trapped by a fallen tree. 12yo Brandon Steven Ramos and Jaison Vladimir Alfaro of 13 years suffered various injuries. They had been playing in the care before the tree fell trapping them inside.
Strong windstorms were the cause of the tree falling and CDS from the Apopa branch collaborated with the Municipal Protection response dept to extricate them by using chain saws to cut the tree and hydraulic equipment. The youth were stabilized, secured and transported to Rosales and Zacamil hospitals in San Salvador.
