Since this last Thursday night, more than 100 of our volunteers have been currently recovering victims from a landslide that covered homes in Nejapa north of San Salvador in the neighborhoods of Los Angelitos 1 and 2 . 9 bodies have so far been recovered of around 30 that are missing. We are working side by side with family members, Red Cross, National Firefighters in coordination with the National Response Emergency System .
Families affected have been sheltered in the polideportivo and also local churches . Donations acquired by CDS are being coordinated by our staff in order to bring clothes, food, and disposable diapers for babies.
Comandos will continue over the next days to continue searching for the missing.
Please donate to our cause on the left side of this post through our gofundme.
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.
2 people were injured during an MVA that took place along the highway to the international airport at the overpass of Santo Tomas. EMS providers intervened to assist the injured and transported them to local hospitals after rescuing them from their car that had fallen over a small embankment.
The injured reported, “imperfect mechanical problems,” as the cause of the accident.
