Our CDS Urban Rescue Squad responded to an accident which involved a route 42B Microbus collision. The incident involved an extrication of an injured female patient who was stabilized and transported to higher level of care. Led by Veteran Comando and Extrication expert Edgar Jhonny Ramos, the squad utilized Jaws of Life and other Hurst pneumatic tools provided by Washington State’s PXTEAM out of Puyallup. Others injured were also transported to local emergency departments.
CDS first responders battled for several minutes to try to save the life of a young driver who apparently lost control of his car and crashed into a tree located on the edge of the Pan-American Highway, at the height from El Congo.
For several minutes the victim remained trapped between the twisted iron of the car, however, upon the arrival of the rescuers, the vital signs of the person were very weak, despite the effort made to free him, the young man lost the battle.
Our Extrication team concluded their work and minutes later the body of the young driver was released and handed over to the police authorities for recognition by forensics
