Comandos de Salvamento helps rescue the injured patient.

Comandos de Salvamento’s High Angle rescue team helped rescue a female near la zona del Ingenio El Ángel de Apopa after she had lost her balance on an iron bridge and fell. CDS collaborated with the Red Cross in offering the patient not only first aid, but emotional support due to injuries sustained.

The rescue took approximately 40 minutes to help 48yo Marisol Santos Fuentes Reyes, who suffered a compound leg fracture. The patient was secured and transported to higher level of care at Rosales Hospital.
